Panel discussion about AI and the future of higher education featuring five Fordham faculty members from various departments.
Drs. Nicole Zeidan, Assistant Director of Emerging EdTech, and Steven D'Agustino, Director of Online Learning, explain ChatGPT, what is behind AI-powered emerging technologies, and the impact on higher education.
Popular programs like ChatGPT can solve complex math problems, create original music and art, and write stories better than an actual person—and sound like one, too. This has triggered a big question among educators: How will AI affect assignments, assessments, and originality in the classroom?
On Feb. 7, Fordham’s Graduate School of Education hosted a panel discussion at the Lincoln Center campus, “Threat or Opportunity? The Impact of AI on Education,” where five experts explored how AI can impact students at all grade levels—and why sometimes, we learn better without fancy chatbots.

"LITE, which stands for Learning & Innovative Technology Environment, offers an array of cutting-edge educational technologies. It reflects a national trend toward learning commons, said Fleur Eshghi, Ed.D., associate vice president of educational technology research computing. Learning commons are shared collaborative spaces, usually located in libraries, where students, faculty, and staff can meet to brainstorm, socialize, research, and strategize, said Eshghi."
Working in collaboration with the Emerging Educational Technology team at the LITE center (Learning and Innovation Technology Environment), President Tania Tetlow joined the Twice Over podcast for a special episode.
Hosted by Steven D’Agustino, director of online learning, and Anne Fernald, special advisor to the provost, Twice Over was developed to build connections through candid conversations about higher education. They conduct recording sessions in a sound-controlled studio within Info Tech's Learning, Innovation, Technology Environment, a tech center in the basement of Walsh Library where students, faculty, and administrators use cutting-edge technology for their research.
