HEPI / Kortext roundtable dinner in Edinburgh, Tuesday 30 January 2024

The launch of ChatGPT in November 2022 made generative AI freely available to every student and, since then, the availability, breadth and capabilities of AI tools have rapidly expanded, becoming ever more sophisticated. The speed of these developments has led both students and higher education institutions to take new approaches to learning and teaching. Yet many questions remain around these tools: How they are used by students? How much can their use aid or hinder learning? What effect will their use have upon the integrity of assessment? And what can institutions can do to ensure AI improves the student experience and outcomes in the long term?

New research by HEPI and Kortext will investigate student attitudes to generative AI, exploring how students currently engage with AI tools and, as ethical boundaries begin to solidify, what use is considered acceptable. 

On Tuesday 30 January HEPI, with support from Kortext, will host a dinner with guest speaker Professor Sir Chris Husbands, Vice-Chancellor at Sheffield Hallam University and chair of the TEF. The dinner will be chaired by Professor Dame Sally Mapstone, Principal and Vice-Chancellor at the University of St Andrews, and President of UUK.
