Student Changemakers projects on AI

Student Changemakers projects on AI

In response to the challenges posed by Generative AI the UCL ChangeMakers team led a co-creator project to address concerns and misconceptions about AI in Higher Education and bridge the gap between staff and students. The project introduced four themes: assessment, feedback, learning support and exploring AI, offering a range of ideas for staff to adapt. In response to the original call and the £600 stipend for student involvement the team received a substantial number of applications from both staff and students. They are now sharing the results through a series of blog posts and lunch time sessions.

Changemakers supported 61 projects, which involved collaborations with 83 students. There were projects across all UCL Faculties.
The 61 projects fell under these themes:

  • Assessment and Feedback – 17
  • Learning Support – 15
  • Exploring AI – 29

The lunchtime sessions will take place during October and November. More details are available on the AI co-creators site.
