The integration of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Higher Education presents a wealth of opportunities and challenges. On the positive side, Generative AI can personalise learning experiences, catering to individual student needs. It can offer predictive analytics to identify at-risk students, enabling timely intervention and support. Additionally, AI-powered virtual assistants and chatbots can provide instant responses to student queries, enhancing efficiency and accessibility. However, these opportunities come with challenges. There are ethical concerns surrounding data privacy and bias in AI algorithms and, of course, the ever-present fear of student plagiarism.

These awareness raising sessions aim to give staff an introduction to Generative AI, with a specific focus on HE, hopefully dispelling some of the fears propagated by the media and introducing attendees to the opportunities of using Generative AI effectively in curriculum and assessment to prepare students to meet real-world challenges as graduates.
