Course Description

How does AI perpetuate stereotypes?

Is the environmental cost of AI worth the benefits?

How can I stop my students using AI for assessments?

Can I copyright my AI-generated artwork / music?

Does AI tell the truth?

This course will provide a comprehensive discussion of the major ethical concerns with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and practical strategies for having conversations with students and colleagues.

Five main areas of AI ethical concern are covered: 

  1. Bias
  2. Environment
  3. Truth and Academic Integrity
  4. Copyright and Privacy
  5. Power

This course includes case studies that illuminate the real risks and concerns of AI, without focusing on the "end of the world" hype that currently dominates the media discourse.

Participants will leave with activities and strategies for holding meaningful discussions with students about the ethics of these technologies.

This PD was originally delivered as a webinar in September 2023. In this online version, transcripts of each video segment are also available for download.
