Artificial intelligence is only one of the many topics we'll discuss with world wide learning leader, Donald Clark. The digital area has significantly impacted every industry of modern life. It's been good in many ways and bad in others. Sadly, the lecture is still the primary means of educating humans in our current systems. Even if that lecture is presented online. But is that as far as digital technology can impact education and our learning systems? I don't think so. And neither does Donald.
We'll discuss the many changes in pedagogy throughout the years in an effort to better understand where we're going in the future. Artificial intelligence plays a major role in that future. But do we really understand how it impacts the work we do for businesses and higher education? Maybe not completely, but we're getting very close.
