ChatGPT has the potential to revolutionize education. By allowing machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to interact with students in real-time, ChatGPT can provide students with personalized and interactive learning experiences tailored specifically to their individual needs. This study uses the Technology Acceptance Model to explore faculty members' attitudes toward using ChatGPT. Semi-structured interviews with 20 faculty members of a private university in Pakistan were conducted. The interview responses indicate that university faculty are generally cautious in using ChatGPT. The faculty members had a negative perception and attitude toward using ChatGPT. Potential risks such as cheating and plagiarism were cited as major concerns, while benefits such as ease in lesson planning and assessment were also noted. The results of this study suggest that university faculty need more information and education about ChatGPT to make informed decisions about its use. Additionally, future research should focus on student perceptions and quantitative methods to gain further insight into how university faculty use ChatGPT for teaching and learning purposes.
