The special issue seeks to compile a robust multidisciplinary collection of papers—drawing from philosophy, the humanities, social sciences, computer science, and other STEM fields—that explore novel pedagogical methodology and practice that use this moment of AI attention to promote the ethical development of students, broadly understood.
