Lecture 1: How might GenAI affect your studies at GU?

Facilitated by Elizabeth Olsson (ASK). The lecture is followed by fika.

The opening lecture delves into the ways GenAI is transforming the academic landscape at the University of Gothenburg. You will learn:

  • GU’s position on GenAI
  • Who decides if and how you can use GenAI in your studies
  • How you can disclose the use of GenAI in your coursework and assignments

About the lecture series: 

The wide release of generative AI (GenAI) tools has left university students in a challenging position. On the one hand, there are now accessible tools that can generate texts, images, and code at the click of a mouse. On the other hand, it is difficult to know if these tools are allowed in university courses and, if so, how they can be used honestly and appropriately. This three-part lecture series is designed to explore the impact of GenAI on university studies, offering insights into the University of Gothenburg’s position, honest and appropriate uses, and uses that may get students into trouble. All lectures will include information, activities, and time to ask questions. 

The lectures are designed as a unit, but can be enjoyed in isolation as well. In other words, you do not have to attend them all, but you will get more out of them if you do.
