Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) tools, like ChatGPT, Dall-E and Copilot, have recently taken the world by storm. These tools are being used to create new content, such as text, audio, video, as well as code and simulations, by interacting with the user. They can also drastically change the way we approach and deliver education. 

Computing education is particularly affected by Generative AI. Learning to program is no longer only for computing students; rather it is increasingly being taught to students from various programs. Students are using Copilot and ChatGPT as valuable tools, providing them with code examples from which they can learn and adapt. However, concerns about misconduct are also rising. Discussions are being held on the implications of these tools on student learning, including whether they should be restricted or even banned altogether.  

This website offers a toolkit and other resources for educators teaching Computer Science and programming courses, to facilitate the understanding and successful embedding of GenAI tools into teaching and assessment practices. The toolkit is the outcome of a project within the Science faculty, involving several teachers and researchers from various backgrounds, including computer science, computing education, Human-Computer Interaction, and Natural Language Processing.
