Generative AI is artificial intelligence capable of generating text, images, or other media, using generative models. Generative AI models learn the patterns and structure of the initial data they contain and then generate new data that has similar characteristics.
The rise of Generative AI has far reaching implications for learning and teaching in higher education for example changing the way higher education is delivered and assessed, perhaps changing the relationship we have with our students and even affecting the value we place on academic awards. Alongside the challenges, there are definite opportunities to enhance what we do and how we do it.
Access resources on Generative AI
To help the sector, QAA has curated a range of resources relating to Generative AI and the ways it can be used as a positive tool while also maintaining academic standards. We have funded this curation work through QAA Membership fees. It is made publicly available for the benefit of the sector.
The resources are arranged in themes – each of which has its own dedicated page. You can gain quick access to QAA advice and resources or browse the different themes. Many of the resources are links to external websites and, while active at the time of creating this site, QAA cannot guarantee their ongoing availability or content.
