Experts to discuss AI in Australian education

Department of the House of Representatives < 1 mins read

The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Employment, Education and Training is holding its first public hearing for its inquiry into the use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) in the Australian education system.

Ms Lisa Chesters MP, Committee Chair, said, “The Committee is convening a panel of AI experts to open our public hearing program. This panel brings together expertise in education, curriculum innovation and digital technology, the responsible and ethical use of AI, and policy and regulation.”

“The use of generative AI has increased rapidly in the past year including by students and teachers,” Ms Chesters said.

“Submissions to the inquiry have identified issues that we want to explore further, including the risks AI poses to academic integrity, and the potential it offers to personalise learning and address educational disadvantage,” Ms Chesters said. “The Committee will hold further public hearings over the coming months to examine these and other issues in depth, with representatives from government agencies, educational institutions, peak bodies, academics, and others.”

Public hearing details will be posted on the Committee’s website when available. More information on the inquiry, including the full terms of reference and how to make a submission, can be found on the Committee website.
