U of R Working Group on Generative AI in Teaching & Learning
Overview and terms of reference
The recent introduction of generative AI technologies, like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, presents both opportunities and challenges for teaching, learning, and mentoring. These innovative tools offer pedagogical advancement possibilities but also introduce complexities related to ethical use, intellectual property, and academic integrity. Therefore, nuanced understanding and thoughtful governance are required. As well, the rapidly changing nature of the field necessitates timely and ongoing analysis to keep abreast of new developments.
In response to this, the University of Regina’s Working Group on Generative AI in Teaching and Learning was formed. Tasked with exploring generative AI’s potential and the challenges it poses, the group aims to establish guidelines for the appropriate and responsible use of AI as it relates to UofR coursework. This complex endeavour focuses on providing strategic guidance for the use of these emerging technologies that aligns with the University’s commitment to educational excellence, equity, student success, and maintaining academic integrity.
