Navigating the AI Landscape with students: Our Library's Approach

Monday, March 25, 2024 - 13:30 to 15:00


How can libraries realise the promise of AI learning tools while navigating risks and concerns around academic integrity? In this session, we will discuss how DMU library is guiding students on using AI tools for research and learning. Our focus is on nurturing critical skills while retaining control over the technology and preserving academic integrity. We'll share our initiatives and explore challenges. 

Presenter: Marie Letzgus (Senior Assistant Librarian – De Montfort University) 

As a Senior Academic Librarian supporting Law at DMU, Marie’s focus extends beyond law students to encompass innovative methods and e-learning tools for enhancing information literacy and critical thinking across all student groups. Her interest in technology has drawn her towards generative AI and she has been actively involved in facilitating discussions with colleagues, as well as creating guides and workshops for students, to foster an understanding of these tools. This approach centres on practical application: leveraging new technologies to refine our information skills teaching and assist students in navigating the evolving digital landscape during their studies and beyond. 

Audience:  Principally aimed at academic liaison & academic skills support staff, but anyone with an interest in AI and libraries is welcome
