ChatGPT is raging: Recent Developments in AI, and How They May Impact Your Teaching

Wednesday 1 Feb 2023 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM
Johnson Commons Ballroom

In the past 18 months, artificial intelligence writing assistant applications have grown significantly in their power and reach. We are all familiar with technologies in our chat, email, and word processing applications that offer to complete our sentences. But recent projects like Open AI’s ChatGPT goes much further, readily answering comments or questions with long responses. These new writing assistants have potentially dramatic implications for  testing, short and long form writing assignments, and plagiarism. In this session we will demonstrate these technologies and begin to develop strategies to prepare for student use of AI writing assistants in your classes.

Facilitators: Dr. Robert Cummings, Executive Director of AIG and Associate Professor of Writing & Rhetoric, and Marc Watkins, Lecturer of Writing, Department of Writing and Rhetoric
