Beyond the Chat: Understanding the Impact of ChatGPT in Higher Education (3 hours)

With the advent of language models like ChatGPT, the Higher Education sector is now faced with the challenges and opportunities of integrating AI technologies into learning and teaching while retaining academic integrity. ChatGPT and other such tools, have certainly sparked debate and investigation across the sector, but in reality are they more hype than harm?

To start to answer this question, you are invited to join us for a special event in our Learning and Teaching Innovation lecture series, where we will address the challenges and opportunities posed by ChatGPT and AI in Higher Education. We will get beyond the chat, and both investigate the risks to the future of education, and the potential to transform the way we teach and learn.

Our keynote speakers, Michael Webb, from JISC, and Professor David Smith, from Sheffield Hallam University, will discuss the practical implications of ChatGPT, and how it can impact the quality of education. Q&A sessions throughout the morning will provide attendees with the opportunities to ask questions and engage with the speakers. A final plenary will include an interactive activity where attendees will have the opportunity to share their own views about ChatGPT, and how Higher Education should be responding to what is being called a potentially disruptive technology.
