Chat GPT and AI in education - What is it and what does it mean for your students and staff?

30 January 2023 4.15pm – 5.15pm Online Online

The free artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT has been attracting global headlines since its launch in November last year due to its ability to produce plausible essays on an array of subjects. Education officials in New York City started blocking the impressive but controversial writing tool earlier in January, with teachers struggling to identify work produced by the AI tool rather than by their students.

IAPS' Digital Innovation Group has responded to the issue by organising this free webinar for IAPS members.
