Presenters from across all disciplines are invited to discuss the impact of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, such as Chat GPT, on teaching and learning.
Though the full capabilities of AI are still largely unknown, or they have yet to be developed, institutions and pedagogues are actively exploring how to work amid and with the realities of artificiality - how to harness the benefits and navigate potential disadvantages of incorporating generative AI tools in the classroom. Presenters from across all disciplines are therefore invited to discuss the impact of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, such as Chat GPT, on teaching and learning and, broadly, on academic standards and practices. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
The place of AI in the classroom.
Potential Benefits: Differentiated and individualized learning, inclusion and universal access to education, using AI to develop digital literacy skills in a post-truth society, lesson planning, immediate evaluations and feedback, analyzing student success.
Potential Disadvantages: Depersonalized learning, risks to critical and creative thinking-skills, ethical implications and issues of academic integrity and privacy, threats to instructors’ and students’ intellectual property, assigning/deciphering ownership and authorship in student work, financial burdens - the cost of AI technology in education.
Sample practices and/or methods of assessment that highlight how AI tools have been/can be integrated in the classroom.
How administration is addressing AI.
Knowledge of students’ opinions on the use of AI and instructor reactions.
The future of research and originally-produced work.
