This Week for Faculty: Learn about AI-focused projects funded by Provost’s Teaching and Learning Grants

by | Apr 2, 2024

Discover how Columbia faculty have integrated AI into their classrooms

Watch Ashli Carter, Lecturer in the Discipline of Management, discuss her Provost-funded project, “Collaborative Art & Play as Inclusive Practice: Redesigning the Leading Teams Course Module with AI-generated Art,” which utilizes a novel pedagogical strategy for delivering concrete lessons of inclusive leadership in the MBA classroom using generative AI to create art in diverse student teams.

Watch Christopher Munsell, Glascock Associate Professor of Professional Practice of Real Estate Development Finance in the Graduate School of Architecture, Preservation, and Planning, and Victoria Malaney-Brown, Director of Academic Integrity, recipients of a 2023-2024 research grant from SOLER (Science of Learning Research Initiative), discuss their investigation of ChatGPT as a learning support in a real estate finance course. The course provided an opportunity to study LLMs in an academic context with implications for professional practice.

Entering Mentoring: Assessing Understanding
Thursday, April 4, 4:00-5:00pm, online – Register

Determining whether our mentees understand the content and processes of our disciplines is not easy, yet doing so is critical for a productive mentoring relationship. Through facilitated discussions and case studies, we will collectively surface multiple strategies that you can use to identify potential causes for when mentees struggle with understanding and how to address them accordingly.
