Overview

The impact of generative AI has been revolutionary in many capacities, however institutions are beginning to see the gradual increase in students passing off AI generated work as their own. This webinar aims to look into the impact of this in relation to inclusion, equity and ethics by exploring the ethical implications in the creation of AI and how this links to the challenges faced in the classroom by diverse student groups.
