What is Generative AI and How Does it Affect the Classroom?

Workshop description

Have you been wondering about the hype surrounding ChatGPT, but haven’t had a chance to try it out for yourself? Wondering how ChatGPT could or should be used in your teaching, particularly within the context of the Language Pledge? In this workshop, you’ll have a chance to:

  • set up your ChatGPT account
  • explore how ChatGPT responds to a variety of prompts (bring your assignment prompts to see how ChatGPT responds to them!)
  • identify issues with ChatGPT-generated responses
  • explore models for discussing AI tools in your syllabus, ranging from considering its use as a violation of classroom principles to cautious adoption for certain tasks which don’t violate the language pledge.

After exploring ChatGPT, we’ll talk about what we learned, and spend some time generating a list of assignments that are more difficult to use AI for, and the advantages and drawbacks of each of those assignments.  We will also equip you with ways of explaining to students what exactly they miss out on in the language learning process when they use AI instead of drawing on their own resources.
