AI in Higher Education: Pedagogy and practice
This page contains my developing notes on the use of AI/Chat GPT in my own practice. Broadly speaking there are opportunities and potential threats from the way students can engage with such tools and the same probably goes for a wide range of administrative tasks in Higher Education practice.
How Students can use AI in their work
Starting an assessment: Ask AI to produce an essay plan for a topic, ask AI what the critical analysis of a particular theory is.
Middle period of producing an assessment: Ask AI to critically analyse a topic, ask AI to improve the quality of submitted text.
Ending an assessment: Ask AI to critically analyse a topic to ensure there is higher level content
Help in writing a personal statement.
Ask AI to produce an interview guide for a semi-structured interview in a study that uses qualitative research methods.
Ask AI to critically analyse a particular theory.
Ask AI to produce a plan for a piece of assessed work.
