USask discusses ethical AI use, education to address changing digital landscape


The University of Saskatchewan has released an article discussing the changing landscape of AI and supporting students in the ethical use of AI tools. USask senior director of Teaching and Learning Enhancement Dr Nancy Turner discussed the need for both students and educators to be informed about AI capabilities and limitations, noting that increased AI use can be seen as a learning moment and an opportunity to reconsider assessment styles and classwork. The university has created a FAQ page detailing common AI-related issues, and Turner’s office is collaborating with academic experts to develop AI-related learning strategies, professional development, and support. “Above all, we need to engage ethically in use of these tools, including appropriately acknowledging when we use AI,” said Turner.
