Staff use and perception of Generative AI in Australian Universities

We invite you to participate in a national survey that examines how AI tools are currently being used by academic, professional and sessional staff in Australian Universities for teaching, research and professional work.

You can access the survey here which takes around 10-15 minutes to complete. The project aims to provide baseline evidence of the extent and nature of AI adoption by Australian University staff, including the impact of AI on productivity in the higher education context.

Survey questions ask about AI-driven practices in specific domains, including assessment, learning analytics, coding, course design, student support, data analysis and visualisation, text summarisation, and collaboration and networking.

The findings will inform higher education policy and practice, assist university staff to navigate the AI revolution effectively, and bridge the knowledge gap that currently exists regarding AI’s impact on higher education.

The survey has been designed by social scientists from QUT and Griffith University. Together, they have longstanding expertise in the intersections of technology, work and education; inclusive education; ethics and integrity; quality supervision and mentoring; and survey design and analysis.
