Since it was launched in November 2022, ChatGPT has enthralled millions around the world with its uncanny ability to respond to queries in a conversational manner. Its apparent capacity to immediately respond to natural language queries with detailed factual knowledge has sparked a conversation about whether the typical forms of university-based assessment can survive the emergence of generative AI tools: systems which can generate content based on user prompts. In this workshop the MA Digital Technologies Communication and Education (DTCE) team will provide an accessible overview of the technology and its implications for education. This will encompass strategies for prohibiting generative AI, reforming assessments to protect against it and incorporating its use into assessments. There will be time to interact with the team to discuss how to apply these strategies on the ground, as well as to build links with others across the faculty addressing similar challenges.
