Artificial Intelligence and Higher Education: Where Are We Going and How Are We Getting There?

  • Timezone : US/Mountain

In November, OpenAI released ChatGPT, a chat interface for its GPT 3.5 large language model artificial intelligence. Using the chat interface, users can make a seemingly endless array of queries of GPT 3.5 that result in often stunning responses. The relative ease in getting the program to create everything from poems to short answers to complete essays has led many faculty and administrators to worry about the academic integrity of coursework. Others are urging faculty to rethink assessment practices and find ways to integrate generative artificial intelligence, especially ChatGPT, into coursework.  

Panelists discussed: 

  • Types of generative AI that are most likely to impact higher education, 
  • Pedagogical issues related to generative AI and coursework, and 
  • Academic integrity and artificial intelligence.
