ChatGPT and Writing Assignments

Implications for Teaching and Student Learning
Thursday, February 16, 2023
3:30-5:00 PM
The artificial intelligence app ChatGPT has been the subject of multiple articles, blogs, and conversation in the academy in recent weeks. Instructors across the country have been grappling with the implications of this technology for their teaching, especially their use of writing assignments. This session will begin with a brief overview of ChatGPT, its functionality and limitations, as well as ways to discourage its use for plagiarism and initial thoughts about how it might be used productively for writing assignments. Participants will then have the option of choosing one of three facilitated roundtable discussions: 1) hands-on exploration of ChatGPT functionality, 2) creating assignment prompts less susceptible to use of ChatGPT, 3) brainstorming ways to leverage ChatGPT in courses. To make the most of this session, participants are encouraged to bring a sample assignment prompt to focus their discussion and reflection.
