Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming integral to our daily lives and educational environments. Yet, our students need guidance on how to use AI tools ethically and productively, particularly with generative AI tools like ChatGPT. Concurrently, instructors are expressing a strong interest in developing engaging, AI-enhanced activities and assignments while minimizing the risks of AI-facilitated cheating.
In this session, we will provide an overview of critical AI literacies for students, and we’ll share tools that instructors can use to help their students master these skills. We will also offer practical resources and scenario-based guidance to help instructors with guiding their students on responsible AI use. This understanding is particularly relevant given Iowa State’s flexible-use AI policies.
Further, we will share strategies for curriculum redesign to maximize the educational benefits of AI while minimizing potential misuse. Our approach integrates inquiry-based and authentic assessment methods typically used to support active, experiential, and project-based learning. We will also delve into the potential of AI for facilitating personalized, disciplinary-specific learning activities across different contexts and learning levels.
Finally, we will provide an overview of our ongoing learning experiments in our new experimental course, “ENGL 222X: Artificial Intelligence and Writing.” In this course, we collaborate with students to test the boundaries of what is possible when it comes to using generative AI to learn and to write. By sharing our preliminary findings, we aim to demonstrate the transformative potential of AI-enhanced learning.
Facilitated by Dr. Abram Anders, Interim Associate Director of the Student Innovation Center and Associate Professor of English and Emily Dux Speltz, Ph.D. candidate in the Applied Linguistics and Technology program in the Department of English.
