Artificial Intelligence in Education: Joe Vukov (Philosophy); Michael Burns (Biology); Susan Haarman (CELTS) 

Description: Artificial Intelligence has been impacting education for years, but now that technology is becoming even more accessible and user friendly, our students may already be utilizing AI to help them write papers and complete assignments. Does this mean education as we know it is doomed? Or is it just another invitation to think creatively about how new technology can blend with time-tested pedagogy techniques to help our students think critically about the future? In this hands-on workshop, we'll be using AI to write example essays, design lesson plans, and reflect on the role of technology in higher education now and in the future.

Additional Resources 

1. Plan to enhance your class facilitation skills

  • Spend time building community standards with your classes to build trust and accountability.
  • Discuss the role of AI in your course with students.
    • Consider co-created a working agreement with students for the course.
  • Incorporate a syllabus statement acknowledging AI and its implications for academic integrity. See some examples here from TemplePenn State, University of Vermont, and Syracuse.

2. Consider ways to retool your course design to center student learning and integrity

  • Create assignments to demonstrate these keys for enhancing academic integrity and prompting students' original thinking:
    • Offer choices in formats to complete the assignment 
    • Break larger assignments into pieces that are assigned throughout the semester
    • Allow (or require) students to submit drafts of written work
    • Ask students to reflect on what and how they learned what they learned
    • Provide regular, timely feedback​
  • Review these assignment examples:
  • Access the "Best practices for enhancing academic integrity" video recording below, and accompanying PowerPoint Slides  and chat transcipt, which includes additional ideas to promote academic integrity.)
