2023 ICA-Edu Enhancing Student Engagement in the Life Sciences Webinar No 3

ICA-Edu Webinar No 3

AI can do your students' written assignments, so what now for assessments?

Was held on Wednesday 3 May from 13.00 - 14.00 CET

Webinar overview:

Assessment in education is changing AIs such as ChatGPT a language model bot is moving rapidly into everyday life. Our response to AI entering the learning space will be to look at what we are assessing and why we are assessing it. This webinar will investigate practical solutions to the integration of such AIs into the skills development of our students. Ideas around assessing the writing process rather than the final product will be discussed.
