Science and Technology at the University of Human Development held a workshop
on ‘ChatGPT and its impact on education’ in F-203 on 16th February
2023. It was delivered by Mr Salar Rahim Tala and Mr Hiwa Omer Hassan.
elaborated on the impact of ChatGPT on education and argued that it can be both
positive and negative. On the positive side, it can serve as a valuable tool
for students and teachers to access information quickly and easily. It can also
help students develop their language and writing skills by providing them with
instant feedback on their questions and written assignments. On the negative
side, relying too heavily on ChatGPT or other AI-powered tools for information
and writing assistance could lead to a decrease in critical thinking and
creativity, as students may not learn to seek out information on their own and
generate their own ideas. Additionally, there is a risk that students may rely
on inaccurate or biased information provided by AI systems.
