New Project: Exploring the Teacher Function: Continuing Speculative Interventions in Automated Teaching

I just kicked off a new project at the Centre for Research in Digital Education building on Sian Bayne’s work on Teacherbot. I am joined by Markus Breines, Myles Blaney, and Marcello Crolla, all of the University of Edinburgh, on this one. Project page is here.

This project builds on the work of Teacherbot (Bayne 2015) and its model “assemblage of teacher-student-code (that) might be pedagogically generative” (2015), as well as indicative actions emerging from the Near Future Teaching project (2019), specifically for an instigation of “an academic-led programme to scope ways in which transparent, fair, context-sensitive artificial intelligence applications and services could assist and support human-driven teaching.” This research project is largely positioned as building on the findings emerging from Teacherbot, further building on ‘the conscious construction of technological worlds that support a desirable conception of what it is to be human’ (Feenberg 2003).
