ChatGPT: Learning, Teaching and Assessment

ChatGPT and other Large Language Models provide both challenges and opportunities for learning and teaching in universities. In this webinar we will look at some differences between human and machine learning and their implications for teaching and assessment. We argue that we can draw on ChatGPT in teaching and assessment to promote student learning and give examples of how we have done so. While ChatGPT can help us to think more carefully about teaching and assessment, and whether our approaches are fit-for-purpose, the expertise of human lecturers remains central in making decisions about what to use ChatGPT for and how to use it.
