"In just a few months, higher education has moved from being afraid of how
generative AI like ChatGPT could help students cheat, to cautiously embracing
it by allowing students to use it under certain circumstances.

In getting to grips with how AI will change education and society, we’ve heard
mainly from educators, university management and other experts. But what about
students, whose studies, careers, relationships and futures will be most
impacted by AI?

We are academics from universities in Sydney and Hong Kong, specialising in
higher education practice and research.

Over the last two months, we have asked students their thoughts about how AI
should be used in their education through questionnaires and focus groups. This
includes a survey of more than 450 students in Hong Kong and pilot focus group
panels with 13 Australian students.

Here are some the key themes to emerge so far from this ongoing research."
