CPD Workshop: Rethinking your assessment for an AI era
This CPD activity looks into how to integrate AI tools in teaching and learning while ensuring that students still play a key role in their learning process.
As AI tools such as ChatGPT gain prominence, we are all grappling with its role in the learning landscape.
This CPD activity addresses the need to strike a balance that allows for the integration of AI tools into the teaching and learning environment while ensuring that students still play a key role in their learning process rather than relying on these tools to do the thinking and assessment for them.
By looking back at technological developments of the past and their impact on the skills required in daily life, the workplace and the classroom, the session will provide some context to the current situation.
As a group, we will then spend the majority of the session reviewing your upcoming courses, brainstorming possible assessment adaptations and openly discussing challenges or concerns. You can think of this activity as a course review clinic.
Through our joint efforts, we aspire to carve out a constructive path for creating assessment that fosters a meaningful learning experience for our students.
