Teaching with AI Course 

Several educators completed our “Teaching with AI” Canvas course as a self-paced or hybrid teaching and learning cohort for fall 2023. During our discussion, we addressed the following queries: What is the significance of ChatGPT and other generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)? What are the pedagogical and ethical implications should instructors be aware of while teaching with AI? How are students incorporating AI, and what are the implications of such usage for our classrooms?

Are you interested in participating if we offer a future “Teaching with AI” course? Please email us at

Upcoming Talks

We are in progress of finalizing our spring 2024 programming schedule.

Upcoming Funding

A subset of Miller Faculty Fellowship funding will be devoted to AI-related projects. Proposals are due in early December.
