Description

Role

The role of a Student Project Officer is to lead and become a co-creator in an exciting and collaborative project being carried out at the Warwick Business School (WBS), looking to develop the first of its kind student-led handbook (and/or other engaging resources) on the practical use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for student success. The Handbook and/or any resources produced as part of the project will also aid students in understanding and adhering to related University policies and learning how to use AI with integrity for studying and employability.

The project is seeking to recruit 2 WBS Undergraduate students who completed IB145 CORE: Foundations, Skills & Debates module in 2023/24 academic year with a module mark of 50 or above.

The Student Project Officer role will help to cement student engagement throughout the project, with Project Officers working collaboratively with various staff and students as participants in the design and delivery of the Handbook.

As such, the role’s contributions will be in several areas:

  • Contributing to writing reports and publications, where appropriate

The role will offer opportunities for developing scholarly publications in collaboration with the rest of the project team.
