The AI (ChatGPT) future: What do we do now?
2 February @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEDT
The rapid growth of generative AI tools including ChatGPT (text), MidJourney (images) and GitHub Pilot (computer code) in the last year has enormous implications for education. Having easily accessible technologies that can generate passably human content may require a complete rethinking of learning and assessment – for good and bad.
Join our panel of experts and enthusiasts in the field in what is likely to be a lively discussion as we explore some immediate practical responses for educators, leaders, learning designers, academic developers, education technologists and more.
This webinar is a collaboration between the ASCILITE TELedvisors Network and the Centre for Change and Complexity in Learning (C3L) at UniSA, with support from Monash University
Hosted by Associate Professor Tim Fawns, Monash Education Academy, Monash University
Tim Fawns researches digital, clinical and higher education. He works within the Monash Education Academy supporting faculty development across Monash University.
