On the Road: NWeLearn 2023 Conference

Saturday, October 14 9:00-9:50am PDT

Education with AI: Rethinking Teaching and Learning in a New Reality

When talking with faculty about AI and the curriculum two concerns dominate the conversation. First, they are unsure where to get started to form an understanding. Second, the rapid pace of AI has left them feeling far behind and overwhelmed about catching up.

This session addresses these concerns with a systematic approach to learning about and integrating AI. In response to the concerns, we will review basics of both promise and peril when it comes to programs like ChatGPT. We will then pivot to an approach to integration informed by a semester of experimentation in a writing classroom at Chico State and instructional resources developed at Alchemy.

The goal of the session is to systematize our response to AI to help faculty and campus leaders think about how our work should change. This will alleviate some of the anxiety-oriented reaction from folks involved in higher education.

Co-Presenter: Zach Justus, California State University, Chico
