New Presentations on Teaching in an Age of ChatGPT and Other Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI)

Given recent developments with ChatGPT and other Generative AI, many faculty and Teaching and Learning Center professionals want to engage our students and preserve our personal and professional well-being in an AI world.

Flower’s talks provide practical guidance at two levels:

  1. the “still-wrapping-our-heads-around-this” level
  2. a more intermediate to more experienced level, considering how to incorporate GenAI into our teaching and learning experiences across a range of disciplines and course modalities

New talk titles:

Both talks are designed to address faculty concerns by acknowledging the challenges we face and then equipping faculty with practical steps forward in this new age.

Flower’s presentation on empowering students by teaching with AI was highly accessible, energetic, provocative and useful. Some faculty attendees shared that they now felt more encouraged to “go try GenAI out for themselves” rather than being intimidated or overwhelmed.

Flower Darby’s workshop helped UTC faculty develop a framework for getting their heads around this new technology and begin thinking about how to create AI-informed assignments for the upcoming semester. The feedback we received from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, and many stated that they felt more equipped to approach the classroom this semester in the midst of what is proving to be a major paradigm shift for higher education. We’re grateful for Flower’s expertise, and we were quick to book her follow-up workshop!
