Playing with ChatGPT

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

Learning outcomes:

  • 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,
