AI appears to be off the radar in the Federal Government’s policy approach to supporting needs-based students.

While institutions around the world have spent the past year grappling with the impact of generative AI on learning and teaching and also assessment, the Needs-based Funding consultation paper, charting the pathway forward to support a huge increase in students from under-represented cohorts, appears to rely primarily on traditional supports as the best way forward.

In an age of AI, is it appropriate to rely on a sample of 18 Indigenous students from two NSW universities in a study published seven years ago as evidence that a tutoring scheme is the best solution for Indigenous student support in future? Is a 2016 paper on equity scholarships the best evidence we can find to demonstrate that more of the same funding will work for the million or so students that the Accord wants to attract, who haven’t yet engaged with the tertiary system?
