SALTISE Webinar | Artificial Intelligence and Academic Integrity: Offloading Cognitive Tasks or Overloading Cognitive Skill Development
In this 2nd webinar on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and academic integrity, the speakers will continue the conversation on the challenges AI presents to our current understandings of academic integrity. Drawing on their expertise and experience, Dr. Smith (Boston College) and Dr. Foxe (Concordia University) will help us understand the nuanced issues that we, as education professionals, are facing due to the recent spotlighting of AI tools such as ChatGPT. They will provide insights into which aspects of this innovation might be genuinely viewed as threats and which can be viewed as opportunities. Specifically, they will discuss ways in which such tools (like ChatGPT) can be used for academic assistance and when safeguards need to be in place to prevent misuse – i.e., academic misconduct.
