This book explores the implications of artificial intelligence’s adoption in higher education and the challenges to building a sustainable system of schooling. As AI becomes integral to both pedagogy and profitability in today’s colleges and universities, critical discourse about these developments is needed to push back against their potential to enable surveillance, control and oppression but also to enable their positive potential. This book examines the development, risks and opportunities inherent to AI in education and curriculum design, the problematic ideological assumptions of intelligence and technology, and the evidence base and ethical imagination required to responsibly implement these learning technologies in a way that ensures quality and sustainability. Leaders, administrators, and faculty as well as technologists and instructional designers, will find these provocative and accessible ideas applicable to their research, practice, decision-making and concerns.
