Inaugural conference addressed teaching, learning and AI on campus


More than 180 students, faculty and staff participated in Clemson University’s recent conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and teaching. “Teaching in the Age of AI,” addressed practices to help students effectively and ethically use AI in their learning journeys.

Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Robert H. Jones opened the event with a welcome message to attendees, presenters and partners acknowledging the importance of dialogue around faculty innovation, student education and AI’s impacts on future careers.

“I’m proud and happy to see so many people gathering here to dig deeply into conversations around the positive, ethical and impactful use of artificial intelligence and start harnessing opportunities for teaching and learning,” he said. 

The Office of Teaching, Effectiveness and Innovation, the Watt Family Innovation Center, the Clemson Libraries, the Center for Career and Professional Development and the Rutland Institute for Ethics sponsored the conference.

Faculty presentations and posters – and industry and student panels – rounded out the day to bring voices from all perspectives to contribute to the discussion surrounding teaching in the age of AI.

Mitch Shue, professor of practice and executive director of Clemson’s AI Research Institute for Science and Engineering (AIRISE), delivered his keynote address, “Decoding AI: Navigating the Present and Anticipating the Future!”

“AI is pervasive now, and we have to prepare our students for a different world. Combining all of Clemson’s resources in one institute will help us recruit top students and faculty and better compete for federal grants that fund cutting-edge research.”
