"A perfect storm is hitting higher education. Decreased funding from traditional funding sources, such as State Governments, and transformative changes caused by artificial intelligence (AI) will revolutionize higher education. Higher education needs to change and evolve quickly and continuously to prepare students for the upheavals in the job market caused by AI, machine learning, and automation.

As AI continues to make inroads into our world and our lives, its impact and effects can no longer be ignored. What kinds of organizational changes in higher education are necessary? How can higher education continue to prepare students for the AI evolution and revolution, and the resulting job displacements and replacements?

This pedagogical research is a study to investigate organizational and curriculum changes in higher education in the AI era. The research is designed to understand the proactive and reactive organizational and curriculum changes that are necessary in higher education. As one of the pioneering research to investigate the impact of AI on higher education, this research will contribute to academic theorizing and inform the practice and management of higher education"--Abstract, p. iii
