'Ethical' use of AI to be incorporated into teaching and assessment, top universities say
🎓 Top universities are adapting their teaching and learning to incorporate the "ethical" use of artificial intelligence.
✍️The Russell Group, which includes prestigious institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, and Durham, has published a set of principles to guide the integration of AI in education.
⚖️ Concerns have been raised about students using AI to cheat on assignments, but the universities believe that generative AI technologies can enhance the student learning experience, improve critical-reasoning skills, and prepare students for real-world applications.
✨Education Secretary Gillian Keegan has asked for evidence on how generative AI can be used in education. The Russell Group emphasizes the importance of academic integrity and ethical use of AI. Students should feel empowered to discuss and ask questions about AI's specific use and challenges.
🎓 Professor Andrew Brass from the University of Manchester highlights the need to prepare students for engaging with generative AI responsibly. It requires close collaboration with students and clear explanations of any restrictions.
✅ Assessment methods also need to evolve to assess problem-solving and critical-reasoning skills, rather than just knowledge recall.
💼 Chief Executive of the Russell Group, Dr. Tim Bradshaw, recognizes the transformative potential of AI and emphasizes the commitment of Russell Group universities to embrace it in a way that benefits students, staff, and maintains the integrity of education.
