The university has launched a new Artificial Intelligence SharePoint site, offering guidance and resources for all staff, but especially those involved in teaching and research.
Earlier this year, we updated our Academic Misconduct Policy to include the use of artificial intelligence (AI) tools under the definition of false authorship. The new policy wording prohibits the use of AI in assessments unless the module convenor has explicitly stated otherwise.
Our new SharePoint resource, collated by the university’s AI Steering Group, has been established to offer staff further support and guidance around the use of AI.
It also brings together training and development opportunities and is a space for members of the community to share their own experiences using AI, as well as research and resources from across the sector.
Professor Mark Bradley, Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Curriculum Leadership) said: “This space is all about helping staff at the university navigate the complex and ever-changing world of AI.
From the latest changes in policy and process to guidance, training and use cases, you’ll find a wide range of support materials from within the university and across the higher education sector on this site.”
Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Shearer West, said: “The proliferation of AI tools in the workplace and teaching spaces looks set to grow exponentially in the coming years, and this resource is about giving our staff the tools and professional resilience to adapt to those changes so that the University of Nottingham can remain at the forefront of teaching and research.”
The SharePoint site brings together short courses and guidance created by our Learning Development team, as well as case studies but it is very much a living space, and a place for you to share your own thoughts and findings.
All staff (those involved in teaching and resource, but also those in Professional Services functions) are strongly encouraged to take part in the new online training module.
This short (approximately one hour) Moodle training course offers an exploration into – and the mindset required – when considering how you might apply AI tools in the work you do.
AI is highly likely to impact on our work, regardless of job role, so this is an opportunity for you to learn and potentially shape what this might look like. You can access the course below.
