Event Description

This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from May 29–June 1, 2023.

Generative AI is increasingly being explored in the academic teaching and learning sphere, presenting new opportunities for interdisciplinary learning and critical thinking through data analysis and synthesis. At the same time, it raises important questions about academic integrity and ethics, requiring careful consideration of issues such as plagiarism, data privacy, and the responsible use of AI-generated content in the academic setting.

In this hands-on session, we will explore various generative AI tools (e.g., ChatGPT, Bing), demonstrate how to write effective prompts and critically assess the content generated. We will discuss the capabilities and limitations of such tools, as well as some ethical considerations. Through the session, we will discuss the application or barriers of Generative AI to various teaching contexts and disciplines, including brainstorming together ideas for designing activities and assessments for your own classrooms in an era of Generative AI.

Please attend if you would like to:

  • Explore Generative AI tools to familiarize yourself with their capabilities and limitations
  • Discuss ways of mitigating or or integrating Generative AI in your teaching and/or assessment strategies
