Good morning, and happy Monday. This week I am tired after jet lag, and some illness, so very little chat from my end.
Just to flag, because I’ll be reading it properly later, UNESCO have released a paper on ethics and AI (which I think is the first from a UN organisation?).
There is a piece in the conversation about brining back oral exams due to chatGPT. Obviously something needs to be done with chatGPT and how we examine, but I’m super skeptical of oral exams, given how much they are likely to impact on students with anxiety, etc. I used to teach somewhere with a very geographically diverse student body, and the differences in results for the one month take home exams versus the three hour sit down in a hall exam were astounding.
And for the Monday that’s in it, today’s tune…
Thanks as every to Sarah Zarmsky, next week’s newsletter will be coming to you from sunny California hopefully! So, if you are in the Bay Area and fancy a chat, please do get in touch.
