This course examines the practical uses of text-generative AI in critical and creative writing.

Throughout this project we will look at an overview of text-generative AI thinking through what Gen AI is, what options or paltforms are out there, which ones you can access through your enrolment at MMU, and which may be the best fit for you and your needs.

We will review ethical guidelines around the use of AI, and take note of the Man Met Uni approach to using AI, and what it means to take an “adaptive” approach to generative software in education.

Discussions and activities will explore ideas around metacognition, what this is and looks like, and why it is so important within the broader discussion of AI as a tool in university. Throughout this exploration we will examine how AI can be used as a way to break down barriers to learning, while balancing considerations of risk, and the necessity for the individual learner to be at the centre of everything AI-related. This process will include reflection and interaction, there will be no correct outcome or answer, rather an exploration and consideration of how you can use AI.

 

All this will lead to you outlining a way you can use AI in the future, appropriately and with real functionality. How can AI help you, and how can we tie in ethical standards and approaches to education while using AI?

Look forward to exploring this with you!
