Incorporating AI into classical classroom teaching at research-based higher education necessitates thoughtful pedagogical considerations.
Firstly, maintain a balanced approach that augments traditional teaching methods with AI tools. Secondly, ensure that AI complements, rather than replaces, the instructor's role. AI should assist in tasks like text elaboration, data analysis and student-initiated feedback while preserving the classroom interactions and dynamics. Thirdly, promote active engagement by encouraging students to interact with AI-driven resources, fostering deeper understanding of the topic or subjects. Fourthly, address potential biases and ethical concerns associated with AI algorithms, cultivating critical thinking around AI's limitations. Fifthly, provide training for both educators and students to effectively navigate AI tools. Lastly, sustain an inclusive environment where technological disparities don't hinder access to learning.
By combining AI's advantages with established pedagogical practices, a cohesive and effective learning experience can be achieved in classical classroom teaching scenarios at the university level.
