Academic Integrity and Assessment in the Era of Generative AI (Panel)
September 6 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The launch of ChatGPT opened the gate to easily accessible generative AI tools by the general public, which in turn raised questions and concerns about how students might use them for their coursework. The presenters will offer approaches to academic integrity and considerations for assessment in ways that focus on learning and resonate with students. Examples and resources specific to teaching at UBC Okanagan will be highlighted. The session will include a Q&A.
