Writing Assignment Design and AI

Generative AI tools can process massive amounts of data and use that data to produce novel textual outputs like essays, blog posts, and other writing. Instructors who utilize writing in their courses will want to consider how to help students interrogate and, when appropriate, integrate these tools into their writing process.

Reflecting on AI in Teaching

Generative AI is an ever-changing technology and the research surrounding its impact on education continues to develop. After a semester of teaching in the age of AI we invite instructors to reflect on the effectiveness of methods, policies, and assignments related to artificial intelligence. The in-person workshop will also explore significant changes in generative AI as it relates to teaching and learning. This is an in-person event held at CELT in 502 King Science Library.
