Sarah Elaine Eaton, PhD

Teaching and assessing writing have become increasingly complex with the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) apps and tools that students can access freely or at a low cost. Eaton provides insights into how Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT and similar apps are impacting teaching, learning, and assessment. Considerations for how artificial intelligence is developing and what to expect in the next few years is part of the conversation.

This session is not about how to use specific tools. Instead, we will delve into the broad ethical and practical implications of AI for educational contexts. A key takeaway from this talk is how academic integrity provides a foundation for ethical decision making beyond the classroom, in the workplace and in everyday life.
