Join the “Teaching with AI” Course to Explore the Impact of AI on Teaching and Learning (PDF)

What’s all the buzz about ChatGPT and other generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)? What should instructors know about the pedagogical and ethical implications of teaching with AI? How are students using AI, and what do such uses mean for our classrooms?

You are invited to join the “Teaching with AI” Canvas course (designed by Auburn University) and promoted by the Chronicle of Higher Education. CELT obtained a license for Iowa State University instructors to explore the impact of AI on teaching, learning, and course design.

About the Course

The “Teaching with AI” Canvas course includes the following modules:

  • Module 1: What do I need to know about IA?
  • Module 2: What are the ethical considerations of AI in our higher ed context?
  • Module 3: What is learning, and how will AI tools affect the courses I teach?
  • Module 4: How are students using AI tools and how can I partner with my students?
  • Module 5: What do I need to rethink in terms of the exams, papers, or projects I assign?
  • Module 6: How do I (re)design courses in the wake of the AI disruption?
  • What other AI tools or capabilities are coming and how do I design for them?
  • What conversations need to happen in my department or discipline, and what is my role?


We are offering this course self-paced or a hybrid teaching and learning cohort:

  • Self-Paced: You have until June 1, 2024, to finish all modules, which should take approximately 20 hours.
  • Teaching and Learning Community Cohort: We will host two synchronous meetings during the 2023-24 academic year to foster active participation and lively discussion among the cohort. During the initial meeting, we will focus on the first four modules completed, and at the final meeting, we will discuss the rest of them.
    • Cohort Meeting 1, Thursday, November 16, 2023 (2-3:30 p.m., online)
    • Cohort Meeting 2, Thursday, February 29, 2024 (2-3:30 p.m., online)

It will take approximately 20 hours to complete all modules and attend the two online synchronous meetings (each meeting is 90 min long).
