Symposium on AI in Education and Academic Writing
Symposium on AI in Education and Academic Writing In-Person / Online
Massive changes have occurred recently with regard to artificial intelligence (AI) and the ability of the public to generate novel text and images using AI tools (e.g. ChatGPT). Many in education are concerned with what this means for assessing student understanding: if a student can generate a novel, accurate essay on almost any topic, how will you assess learning from short-answer and essay assignments? In this symposium, you will be presented with the basics of how AI works, play with some AI tools, hear how other faculty are addressing these challenges, discuss concerns and opportunities with colleagues, and think about developing your teaching philosophy in the time of artificial intelligence (AI).
