There is no denying the power of AI to transform aspects of higher education, which makes it all the more important to upskill staff effectively on its use. In our series looking at 100 ways to use ChatGPT in higher education, Seb Dianati and Suman Laudari, of Charles Darwin University, run through effective ways to prompt generative AI for teaching and learning and applications in teaching, assessment and administration.


Professional development is also occupying the thoughts of our contributors this week. With part-time employees making up more than 60 per cent of teaching-only staff in UK higher education in 2021-22, Martin W. Andrews, of the University of Portsmouth, and Ruth Lang, of the Royal College of Art and London School of Architecture, outline ways to better support the professional development of these teaching staff, while the University of Edinburgh’s Darcey Gillie explains the importance of talking about impact when applying for academic jobs.


Speaking of expressing ourselves, “Do you speak Gen Z?” asks Jennifer Pulkkinen, of the University of Derby, before giving her tips on adapting your lingo, while M. C. Zhang, of Macau University of Science and Technology, discusses the power of debate to enhance critical thinking in organisational behaviour courses. 


Finally, in our latest podcast, hear from Henrietta L. Moore, of University College London, Alan Irwin, of Copenhagen Business School, and Kenyan farmer Joel Bitok about how engaging non-academics in research can uncover and disperse new knowledge and ways of thinking that help shape solutions to seemingly intractable problems.
