AI CIRCLS and JCHE Collaboration

AI CIRCLS is collaborating with the Journal of Computing in Higher Education (JCHE) on a special issue on AI and education equity in higher education. The call for submissions to the special issue can be found here, with abstracts due December 15, 2023.

Six emerging scholars, whose work centers around themes related to diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and social justice in educational technology, will participate as an advisory board on the special issue (see list below). From the period of November 2023–July 2024, advisory board members will consult on requirements for how articles in the special issue engage with ideas related to equity, as well as interact with potential authors directly to answer questions and give feedback on their work. In addition, the Advisory Board recently gave an invited panel at the online Empower Learners for the Age of AI (ELAI) 2023 Conference (click to view the ELAI Panel recording).
