Today, the use of online translation is raising fundamental questions about the teaching and assessment of writing in higher education. This talk will further explore ideas of ownership, authorship, and academic integrity. It will also look at parallels and contrasts between machine translation and generative AI, most notably Chat GPT.
This event will be particularly useful for those interested in academic literacies, AI and assessment, machine translation, and writing development.
