Playing with ChatGPT

Hello it’s me… ChatGPT: What exactly are Large Language models, and what does that tell us about the challenges and opportunities for teaching at university?

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about how Large Language Models work,
  • Learn about its strengths and weaknesses,
  • Learn about the legal issues,
  • Discuss the implications for scientific (code) writing,
  • Work on possible changes in your teaching and assessment,
  • Possibly discuss implications for sentience and consciousness.

This activity will be offered on-site at EDLAB. This activity may count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) if relevant to your situation.
