Teaching and Thinking with AI
with Dr. Jose Antonio Bowen (Senior Fellow, American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U))
The excitement (and panic) surrounding A.I. is shattering expectations around assignments, assessment, class preparation and attendance, while challenging us to build more future-proof and inclusive classrooms. AI is changing working and thinking: as jobs and the way humans do thinking tasks change, how will our curriculum respond? AI is also changing how we think about “average” work. If ChatGPT can produce consistent “C” work, then we need to update our policies around grading. AI is even changing expressions of creativity. Together, we will examine the skills and content that will matter most in this new age, what policies and practices improve motivation and decrease cheating, and why articulation of ‘quality’ is essential. Focusing on the tangible, attendees will also learn techniques to transform assignments and assessments to motivate and engage students by placing greater emphasis on the process and experience of learning.
About the speaker:
Some of you may remember Dr. Bowen as one of the most effective and well-received keynote speakers from our Faculty Technology Day events. He is a winner of the Stamford University Alumni Scholar Award, as well as the Ernest L. Boyer Award in 2018 by the New American Colleges and Universities. He is also currently writing a book on teaching with AI.
