George Veletsianos updates us on a report (21 page PDF) released yesterday that he wrote in conjunction with D2L. There's also a U.S. version. It describes a "Pan-Canadian Digital Learning Survey (that) received responses from 438 administrators and faculty members, located at 126 unique institutions across Canada" and "examines faculty member and administrator perspectives on Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)." I'm not a huge fan of 'faculty perception' studies (which are in effect multi-authored opinion pieces). The results are about what we would expect: "leaders should further publicize the institutional stance, guidance, and/or policies to faculty members and administrators", "continue engaging in conversations around the limitations and biases of AI", and "continue engaging in conversations that center the question "What do preferable education futures look like?"
