ChatGPT is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool that has taken the world by storm, reaching 100 million users just two months after its launch. In addition to the dynamic changes in technology, the ethical implications of ChatGPT and other forms of AI are also advancing rapidly. This seminar will present the Quick Start Guide we have published at IESALC and provide an overview of how ChatGPT works, as well as some of its main uses in higher education. The impact of ChatGPT on higher education has been immediate and divisive. Although its applications in higher education are extensive, many universities have already banned it for fear of student plagiarism, and several countries have blocked ChatGPT. The Quick Start Guide poses some of the main ethical challenges and implications of AI in higher education and offers practical cases of interest. Recognizing that AI has both positive and negative effects, UNESCO published a series of recommendations on AI ethics at the end of 2021 to provide guidelines aimed at ensuring that different AI systems work for the improvement not only of humanity (individuals and societies) but also for the good of the environment and ecosystems. Additionally, UNESCO's publication describes emerging practices in education and analyzes the challenges of using AI to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Quality Education).
The topics that will be covered in the seminar are as follows:
Quality Managers, Teachers, Tutors, Facilitators and Professionals who wish to improve skills in the Teaching-Learning processes.
To carry out this seminar, no prior specific knowledge is necessary. For its best use, it is suggested to have basic knowledge in the use of digital tools and an internet connection.
At the end of the Seminar you will obtain the Participation Diploma issued by UNESCO IESALC and the digital credential that certifies that you have completed the training process.
