About the event
Join us for a concise yet informative seminar on AI Innovations for Higher Education. Dr Paul C CORRIGAN will present on cultivating an ecosystem at the City University of Hong Kong to support AI innovations in teaching and learning. Dr Crusher WONG will discuss the charging mechanism of chatbots with GPT LLM models to recommend cost-effective utilisations. Ms Belle WONG will investigate the effectiveness of AI-content-detecting tools in combating AI-assisted cheating. This seminar will provide valuable insights into enabling an AI-savvy teacher community, maximising the benefits of generative AI chatbots with a limited budget, and implementing solutions to address academic integrity challenges. Take advantage of this opportunity to explore the transformative potential of AI in higher education.

Topics & Speakers:
1. Cultivating an Ecosystem for Supporting AI Innovations in Learning and Teaching
Dr Paul C CORRIGAN, Senior Education Development Officer, Talent and Education Development Office, City University of Hong Kong
To support AI innovations in teaching and learning, the City University of Hong Kong developed a holistic infrastructure, rolled out in three main stages: Raising Awareness; Building Knowledge and Skills; and Implementing and Supporting. Stages included multiple steps with the ultimate aim that pedagogy was credible with respect to AI implementation and that deserving projects would be appropriately funded. In the end, 18 projects were funded to a total of $1.8M, impacting almost 2,000 students in most of the CityU’s Colleges and Schools.
2. ChatGPT - The Cost of Acting Smart
Dr Crusher WONG, Senior Education Development Officer, Talent and Education Development Office, City University of Hong Kong
The empirical results of comparing generative artifact intelligence (GenAI) chatbots will be shared to evaluate the performance and value of such products. Prices to adopt ChatGPT and GPT-4 models will be calculated to recommend cost-effective use in education. With the information provided, we hope educators and learners can reflect on the GenAI resources available to maximise the benefits and minimise the hazels.
2. Catch Me If You Can - Investigating the Performance of Some AI-Content-Detecting Tools
Ms Belle WONG, Instructional Designer, Talent and Education Development Office, City University of Hong Kong
The presentation delves into the heart of a crucial issue for educators today: the potential misuse of AI in academic environments. We explore the effectiveness of several AI-content-detecting tools, considering factors such as AI models, temperatures, types of texts, and lengths of text. This presentation will provide valuable insights into the solutions related to AI-assisted cheating.
