Artificial intelligence and academic integrity

Thomas Lancaster
9th September 2022, 13:00 CEST

Artificial intelligence is becoming part of everyday life for many, so much so that many current students will find themselves relying on artificial intelligence tools when they progress into employment. The educational community has not yet fully embraced the opportunities offered through artificial intelligence or considered the possibly ways in which these technologies could be misused by students, allowing them to breach academic integrity standards. Join this webinar where Dr Thomas Lancaster will discuss artificial intelligence technologies available for students now and how this can be used to provide them with unauthorised assistance for written and creative assignments. He will demonstrate written and graphical outputs from current tools that students can access and consider how the educational community should adapt its processes in light of artificial intelligence.

About the lecturer

Dr Thomas Lancaster is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Computing at Imperial College London, UK, with responsibility for student support. He has been researching academic integrity related topics since 2000. Thomas is best known for research into contract cheating, a threat to academic integrity he first discussed in 2006. He now sees a similar threat posed by artificial intelligence and encourages the sector to consider early interventions to this threat. Thomas works with sector bodies on academic integrity and regularly delivers keynote addresses and provides training on associated issues.

Celebrating the European Year of Youth through Academic integrity. How students help in establishing institutional integrity and values

11th November 2022, 13:00 CET

This webinar will be moderated by Oraz Myradov and count Megan O’Connor as the invited speaker to present students’ perspectives on the topic of academic integrity in digitised education. Megan is an ENAI award winning academic integrity expert from the Republic of Ireland.

Students play a crucial role in upholding the fundamental values of academic integrity. With the digitalisation of education, not only are many students under more pressure and mental health challenges, but the risk of getting caught is, for many, considered less than the risk of not doing well. This begs to question of where we are placing our value as a society – on quality education or on grades and where does this stem from? How the relevant examination tools can help to ensure the quality of education while putting students in the centre of the learning process and what role do teachers and administration play in it?

About the lecturer

Oraz Myradov is the head of the ENAI working group for students and also Executive Committee member of the European Students’ Union (ESU). Representatives of the ESU are members of the ENAI working groups for students.

The purpose of the ENAI working group for students is to integrate students and student bodies in ENAI activities, support student community with academic integrity tools and resources and consult with ENAI members on students’ involvement in the area of academic integrity.
