CTLE Professional Development Seminar:

Generative AI for Teaching, Learning and Assessment: Opportunities and Issues 

**Venue has been updated to E3-G034**


Generative AI systems such as ChatGPT are already disrupting education. They can write essays for students, summarise scientific texts, produce lesson plans, engage in conversations, and draft academic papers. In this presentation I will introduce the capabilities and limitations of current generative AI. We will explore roles for AI teaching, learning and assessment, such as Possibility Engine, Socratic Opponent, Co-Designer and Dynamic Assessor. Rather than seeing AI solely as a challenge to traditional education, we can prepare students for a future where AI is a tool for creativity, to be operated with great care and awareness of its limitations.
