Education and Generative AI | Call for Proposals | Spring 2022/23

Commissioned by the Office of Provost, the Center for Education Innovation (CEI) is inviting faculty and teaching staff to propose Education and Generative AI (EDGE-AI) projects to explore new methods and methodologies for using generative AI technology in their courses and building best practices.

As part of Teaching Development Fund, the Education and Generative AI (EDGE-AI) Fund has been established to support program-level, course-level, and cross-disciplinary projects that integrate generative AI tools in the formal undergraduate curriculum at HKUST. We welcome projects that aim to:

  • Incorporate generative AI and generative models to enrich engagement
  • Adopt generative AI technology in teaching activities or tasks
  • Foster authentic learning through experiential approaches with generative AI
  • Utilize generative AI to measure students’ learning process and provide feedback
  • Utilize generative AI for developing, delivering or analyzing assessments
  • Facilitate innovative active learning through competency-based, challenge-based, and inquiry-based pedagogies with generative AI in academic courses

As part of the application process, applicants are required to indicate how their project deliverables can be adapted for at least two courses within their department. This will help to ensure that the project deliverables are relevant to the teaching courses and can be transferred to other courses within the department, and promote appropriate and wider adoption of generative AI tools in teaching and learning.


  • Up to HK$ 250,000.
