ChatGPT at TU Delft?

News - 06 February 2023 - Teaching Support

The ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool has taken off enormously, therefore the education industry can’t ignore it. Due to its impact, discussions on faculty and university level on how to deal with it in teaching and assessments are ongoing. The general stance is that the tool should be seen as a potential learning tool. However, it does have implications for assessments. We must be able to properly assess whether students themselves have acquired knowledge, insight and skills within a course or programme.

Expertise and Guidelines

Several faculties have set up think tanks on how to use ChatGPT in education and how to deal with it in assessments. Those insights will be combined with input from AI experts and learning developers of TU Delft and discussed within the TU Delft's teaching community; the Teaching Academy will be instrumental in this. The Working Group Assessment of TU Delft has been asked to propose a set of guidelines for lectures and students on how to deal with the ChatGPT or similar tools during assessments, both formative and summative, before the start of the third quarter (mid-February). Students will be informed as well.
