This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 11-15, 2023.

The rapid growth of Generative AI is impacting higher education and may change the process of teaching. Through this interactive workshop, participants will reflect on their teaching approach and discuss how to navigate this growing field of AI to positively impact student learning. The adoption of GenAI tools raises various considerations that can impact the teaching practice.

GenAI tools provide an opportunity for more creativity to develop engaging lessons, offer instant feedback, and generate creative materials to accommodate the needs of students. Through hands-on practice and peer collaboration of various prompting techniques and design patterns, this session will familiarize you with effective ways of using GenAI tools that will inform your teaching practice and positively impact student learning.
