UK’s Russell Group universities announce guiding principles on generative AI


As in Canada, artificial intelligence (AI) continues to be a notable topic of interest in the UK’s postsecondary education sector. The vice-chancellors of all 24 Russell Group universities have signed on to a set of five guiding principles on AI. The principles commit institutions to ensuring that students and staff are AI literate, staff are equipped to support students in understanding AI, teaching and assessment is adapted to incorporate the ethical use of generative AI, academic rigour and integrity are upheld, and institutions collaborate on best practices in the application of the technology. “It seems very likely every job and sector will be transformed by AI to some extent,” said Gavin McLachlan (University of Edinburgh).
