This keynote explores how teaching and learning in higher education may need to adapt to world with Artificial Intelligence (AI). In a time when generative AI has hit the headlines, it is important to move beyond the positive and negative hype. I do not position AI as a shining utopian opportunity nor a destructive dystopian force. Rather, I explore how we can teach students about (and with) AI in complex and dynamic ways. The concept of an ‘AI interaction’ is introduced as a foundational starting point.  I also introduce specific strategies with concrete examples for teaching students about how to engage with a world of AI.  These emphasise ideas such as developing evaluative judgement and building criticality as a means to help students grapple with an AI-mediated world.
