Since November 2022 you will no doubt have heard mention of tools like ChatGPT or terms like Generative AI but you may have not had time to explore any of these tools or consider how they might be helpful, when used appropriately, to support learning and teaching. 

To help you take the first steps in understanding some of the ways in which you can use Generative AI, the TEL team in the Centre for Learning & Teaching, has been running a number of face-to-face and online webinars to introduce staff to using the University-supported tool, Microsoft’s Copilot in Bing.  The next session is scheduled for Tuesday, 25 June and a few places are still available but keep an eye on our Events page for dates of future sessions. 

The team has also created a diagnostic to help you identify your current level of knowledge in relation to aspects of GenAI usage, and a series of self-paced resources, available on Moodle, for you to work through in your own time, to help you understand the basics.  

Our short courses 

These resources are aimed at those who have not yet engaged with Generative AI but who are interested in finding out more.  As we go forward, these resources will be supplemented with more advanced resources focusing on specific aspects of learning and teaching. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Teaching Hub where we will post information about any new developments.
