Generative Artificial Intelligence in the Education Sector

Current Projects

Sponsored by the Government of Ontario through the Skills Development Fund.

Diversity Research & Consulting is currently working on a pilot study that examines the impact of large language models (LLM) such as ChatGPT, in the education sector. The research will explore the skills required to use the technology, the challenges and opportunities with using the technology for educators and learners, and the benefits and risks of integrating the technology into the school curriculum.

Recognizing education as the key to Ontario’s future workforce, Our research will help decision makers, institutions, and faculty better understand how LLMs can be integrated into the education sector without abandoning traditional learning milestones (e.g. writing reports and essays without aid of AI).

Our research will be conducted in a two-phased approach. The first phase of our project consists of a survey for educators. The second phase of our research includes a pilot curriculum that helps equip educators and students with the tools needed to utilize generative AI’s potential.

Generative AI Survey for Educators

The survey takes approximately 3 minutes to complete and will be available until December 31, 2023. Participation is voluntary and respondents will have a chance to win a $500 giftcard. If selected, the entrant must correctly answer a time-limited skill-testing mathematical question. By entering the survey, the entrant indicates they have read the information provided and agree to participate.
