Leafy, walkable, medieval Durham is inviting you onto campus for our PIM on Friday, June 30th, 9.30 – 4pm.
We’ll be exploring how HEIs, and EAP / ESP teachers and high-stakes assessment course designers are responding to the latest advances in AI tools available to our students. Neural Machine Translation seems to be moving texts from flawed to ‘too good’, while Transformer AI is getting creative: generating text, mimicking writing styles, and even producing plausible academic misinformation.
What does this mean for the role of English language competence, digital literacy in academia, and authorship in HE? How are HEI policies adapting, and how are / should we be teaching and assessing our pre-sessional and in-sessional students?
Join us and our plenary speaker Mike Sharples, Emeritus Professor of Educational Technology at The Open University, to find out more.
