University educators often keep abreast with the newest technologies in teaching and learning. Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools now can generate instant answers by just typing a question, such as ChatGPT (i.e. Generative Pre-trained Transformer). However, the results generated are highly generic and lack authenticity that can reflect a learner’s initiative, information skills, original solutions or personal opinion in response to an assessment question asked. 

UTAR Teaching Forum 5.0 will address some of these concerns:

v  Discuss the perceived functions and limitations of ChatGPT;

v  Provide useful tips for lecturers and learners to use it responsibly;

v  Suggest ways to sharpen learners’ critical thinking skills when using it;

v  Design or re-design assessments with AI-assisted learning tools in mind.


Online pre-registration is required for UTAR academic staff by 27 February, 12.00 noon:



Please ask our speakers any questions / inquiries that you may have, and suggest topics you wish to hear / highlight. 

Let’s embrace this disruptive technology positively as a commitment towards quality education for the benefits of future-proof UTAR graduates. 

We look forward to your participation.
