If a robot can do your students’ homework, should you outlaw the robot or change the homework? With the advent of easy-to-use artificial intelligence (AI) text generation tools like ChatGPT, educators must grapple with this question and what it means for their course and assignment designs. In this practical session, we will briefly survey the landscape of AI tools for generating text and other media, then dive into the teaching choices they present. What changes do we need to make to our learning objectives, if any, in light of ChatGPT, and other AI tools? How can we design assignments that either integrate, disallow, or minimize AI tools to meet those learning objectives? And what new norms and policies for academic integrity do we need to develop in an age of AI? This session will feature teaching principles and examples of practice to help answer these questions.
