Upcoming TELedvisors SIG Webinar

The two ‘AIs’ – academic integrity and artificial intelligence

Date: 23 February
Time: 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm AEDT

ChatGPT offers or threatens a paradigm shift in assessment in higher education, and we are all striving to stay afloat. We know we will change practices – what about our mindsets?

From our last TELedvisors webinar, and from the different discussions that we have been following on this topic, we have all been trying to make sense of these opportunities and challenges to our work. The relationship of the two AIs is a central concern: does our understanding of academic integrity need to change in relation to artificial intelligence? More fundamentally, what are we actually assessing, and where can we support the building and creating of knowledge and skills?

To address these issues, we have invited Dr Alex Sims to talk with us. Alex has been considering these shifts and adapting her assessment methods over several years.

Please bring your questions to the session as we take an in-depth look at the two AIs.

About our speaker:

Alex is an Associate Professor in the Department of Commercial Law at the University of Auckland’s Business School, where she teaches a wide range of commercial law subjects. Her primary area of research currently is blockchain technology, and she is an Associate at the Centre for Blockchain Technologies at University College, London.

Upcoming Learning Design SIG Webinar

Inclusive Education: Designing for Teachers and Students

When: 17th Feb at 12pm ASDT
Speaker: Vicki-Anh Winfield

In this talk I will share my lived experience of Disability and how it informs my daily practice as an Educational Designer. I’ll show you how to create learning experiences that are inclusive for both the student and teacher. We will take a look at examples where assistive technologies can be used in the classroom to enhance the learning experience. I will share practical tips on inclusive workflow and my wholistic design philosophy that encourages all stakeholders in a learning initiative to flourish. As Educational Designers, we have the opportunity to change the future of our community. Everybody deserves to learn, and everybody deserves to teach. By the end of this talk, you will be able to answer the question: what can you do today to build an inclusive tomorrow?

Vicki is an Educational Designer in the Faculty of Science at the University of Sydney. She stumbled into the curious world of Educational Design after pursuing a Bachelor of Communication and teaching part-time during her studies. Vicki’s experience as an ED spans several teams and two Universities where she has worked on post-graduate, student transition, workplace upskilling, interdisciplinary, first-year studies and project-based learning projects. She believe education is one of the most exquisite experiences a human can have, but it can also be the most devastating. The psychological effect learning has on student confidence and the student-teacher relationship are topics that currently interest her.
