Why I’m Not (Too) Scared about ChatGPT
February 1, 10–11 a.m.
ChatGPT, a tool that uses artificial intelligence to respond to written prompts, has received a lot of media attention. While initial reactions focused on what automated writing and AI could mean for academic integrity, such tools invite a broader conversation about how new writing technologies may transform how writing is learned in classrooms and used in the wider world. We’ll discuss and experiment with the potential (good and bad) of ChatGPT. We’ll also identify a few reasons why students cheat and what we can do about it (think assessment design). We’ll consider why and how we can be creative in using ChatGPT in our classes, for example, to support accessibility.
This workshop is facilitated by Academic Technology Support Services (ATSS), Center for Educational Innovation (CEI), and Writing Across the Curriculum (Twin Cities)
