The President's Innovation Fund (Innovation Fund) is a competitive grant program for full-time faculty with the strategic goal of encouraging and supporting faculty innovators who will experiment with and develop evidence-based learning models that can be extended to other faculty and courses at Miami Dade College and beyond. Projects can be proposed by individual faculty or faculty teams, and there will be up to 10 awards per grant cycle with a maximum award amount of $10,000. This is intended to support faculty professional growth by funding projects to improve student learning. More information can be found here: https://www.mdc.edu/innovate/
The purpose of Artificial Intelligence for Business Innovation and Sustainability (AIBIS) is to promote student engagement, applied learning, and career success by introducing artificial intelligence (AI) curriculum content in active-learning business classrooms, in which students will answer how to create and foster sustainable business practices using AI.
AI driven tools and techniques are expected to add $13 trillion to the global economy in the next decade. Businesses of all sizes are infusing AI by utilizing technology as a decision-making tool to improving manufacturing, operations, customer service, and supply chain across all industries. There is a dire need in the industry to train managers on the application of AI and that is how our project will contribute to student learning.
