Generative AI

What does the use of Gen-AI mean for us in learning and teaching?

The sudden sophistication of generative AI tools and their utility has surprised many of us, even skeptics. ChatGPT4 can produce increasingly elaborate essays, DALL-E 3 creates artwork from a simple prompt, and Sora renders video from text. But these outputs are not exempt from bias, distortion or fabrication. Despite these concerns, the potential of AI is undeniable. Industries are scrambling to hire skilled graduates who can utilise AI ethically, to boost efficiency and unlock a competitive advantage.

So whether we like it or not, Gen-AI is shifting how we learn, work, and play. As educators, let’s take the opportunity to explore this technology and harness its potential for teaching and learning.
