Commented on The digitalization of learning and teaching practices in higher education institutions during the Covid-19 pandemic
This article added to and clarified the existing literature on the digitization of learning and teaching approaches. It stresses the role of lecturers and students in implementing digital learning and teaching approaches. The issues outlined in this essay cannot be ignored, and the COVID-19 pandemic has surely impacted learning and teaching techniques in Higher Education around the world. This is essential for ensuring that the transition to digital learning is gradual and fosters critical conversations and debates between students and teachers. The study also proposes that future online courses share this teaching method's ideas, concepts, and obstacles from the outset to boost students' abilities and motivation, particularly in volatile learning and teaching environments.

Commented on Semantics derived automatically from language corpora contain human-like biases
People's historical data representation determines how visible they are to AI. When it comes to identifying people who are members of underrepresented groups in the training data, AI struggles. Because historically underrepresented groups are not linked to particular jobs, they run the danger of facing prejudice in AI-assisted hiring processes. This general pattern has significant implications for democracy. For instance, because certain groups are often rendered invisible, their influence would be reduced in any AI-based depiction of the political system and forecasts of its actions, preferences, and grievances.

AI and the FCI: Can ChatGPT Project an Understanding of Introductory Physics? This study examines the initial performance of two ChatGPT versions (ChatGPT3.5 and ChatGPT4) in first-semester university physics courses. They do this by evaluating their ability to provide accurate answers to conceptual physics questions concerning kinematics and Newtonian dynamics using a modified version of the Force Concept Inventory (FCI). They show that, although ChatGPT3.5's performance is noticeably variable and the results are subtle, it can, by some measures, match or surpass the median performance of a university student who has completed one semester of college physics. Using the same metrics, they discover that ChatGPT4's performance on introductory mechanics topics is nearly identical to that of an expert physicist.

Commented on Fighting off journal rejections on the path to manuscript acceptance
This webinar provides recommendations on journal rejections on the path to manuscript acceptance. To avoid rejections, pay attention to common concerns raised by journal editors. These often include issues related to clarity, methodology, significance, and adherence to ethical standards. Before submission, use checklists to review your manuscript for common pitfalls, such as unclear writing, inadequate literature review, or insufficient data presentation. Strategies to prevent common rejections involve seeking feedback from colleagues or mentors, conducting rigorous self-editing, and considering pre-submission peer review services. Address reviewers' comments constructively and revise your manuscript accordingly. Engage with the journal's feedback transparently and thoughtfully. Maintaining persistence, resilience, and a willingness to learn from rejections is crucial. Each rejection is an opportunity for improvement. Consider attending workshops or seeking advice from experienced researchers. By implementing these strategies, you enhance the quality of your manuscript, increasing the likelihood of acceptance in reputable journals.
