Session Description: 

Drawing on scholarship dedicated to data justice and ethics of care, this presentation seeks to answer urgent questions associated with the proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Higher Education (HE). We will look at how AI can be used in HE for good, how can this rapidly growing industry be regulated, and what would a conceptual framework for data justice and fair usage of AI in HE look like?

Practical lessons from designing AI guidelines to empower educators in HE (and beyond) are shared.
