Brian Buffington was our keynote speaker for our fall retreat for faculty and staff in our college of education. My goal was to have a speaker who was engaging and could create a sense of excitement about the start of a new academic year, and Mr. Buffington did not disappoint! His focus on “things that can’t be googled,” along with an emphasis on re-imagining or re-envisioning AI, helped faculty to think about their classroom approaches in new ways. After teaching for many years, we sometimes need a boost in terms of creative approaches to the college classroom. Additionally, we need to complicate the discussion surrounding the use of AI in the college classroom, and Mr. Buffington assisted us in navigating those conversations in new ways. Not only that, but he also left us with one of his trademark songs, accompanied by one of our faculty, in a fantastic performance that we will never forget! I couldn’t have imagined a better way to start the year.
