Building on the What is Generative AI and How Does it Affect the Classroom workshop, and led by Dr. Thor Sawin, Associate Dean of Language Schools, this workshop offers concrete strategies for trying out AI tools in language instruction, and for teaching learners how to benefit from AI tools in their own language learning. All activities presented will be in the context of the Language Pledge.We will explore and demonstrate strategies such as:

  • creating rubrics  for evaluating and creating AI activities which truly benefit learners’ language acquisition
  • providing more detailed and individualized feedback to language learners
  • using AI to brainstorm lesson plan ideas or create effective learning materials
  • using AI to support learning activities such as
    • collectively iterating on prompts to explore language variation
    • annotating screenshots of AI-generated texts to develop noticing and editing skills
    • contrasting the structure and language choice of hand-written vs. AI-generated texts
    • generating key vocabulary lists for topics and texts
    • noticing new and varied language formulas and patterns.

You will leave equipped with practical activities to train learners on for all language levels, as well as ideas for making your own feedback provision and lesson planning a little easier.
