Presented by Dr Mark J.P. Kerrigan (Head of Digital Learning) and Dr Iain Cross (Associate Professor in Education Development).
The aim of this session is to explore AI and the current thoughts, practice, and applications in higher education and how tools and approaches can be used to support those researching in Higher Education. Specifically, it will be divided into three sessions whereby:
Part 1: Exploration of AI and current thinking in HE and research
Part 2: Hands-on workshop on how to construct ChatGPT prompts to support the creation of a piece of text.
Part 3: Hands-on workshop on using AI to support decision making in constructing a literature review dataset.
This is a hands-on workshop with interactive activities. We will explore how to create ChatGPT prompts to support undertaking a literature review. We will also demonstrate how to use an AI tool (Rayyan) to support the creation of a literature dataset.
