Teaching and Thinking with AI with Dr. Jose Antonio Bowen (9/7/23)


The excitement (and panic) surrounding Artificial Intelligence (AI) 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 approach analytic 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. 

During the Teaching and Thinking with AI session on September 9, 2023, faculty examined 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, faculty learned about techniques to transform assignments and assessments to motivate and engage students by placing greater emphasis on the process and experience of learning.
