The Rise of ChatGPT by Dr Aisling Tierney

Artificial Intelligence is now so accessible that, with some clever steps, it can produce good quality essays that rarely get caught by plagiarism checks. The higher education sector is abuzz with talk on how this will affect the rate of cheating and the impact on student learning. What does this mean for our practice?

Student Research Journal – call for papers

BILT’s Student Research Journal is a, peer-reviewed journal, dedicated to the encouragement of students and the wider academic community to value undergraduate research through the publication of high-quality student research. The journal publishes outstanding work from across the University’s faculties, highlighting the diversity and breadth in the work of Bristol students, and enables valuable professional experience in reading and editing submissions, carrying out the peer-review process and preparing papers for publication, for the all-student publication board.

We hope the journal will encourage students to see themselves as researchers and promote the view that they are valued members of the academic community at the University of Bristol. Explore our previous Student Research Journals and please encourage your students to submit.

BILT Student Research Journal. Open for submission and editorial board application.
