Teaching Lab for Generative AI Tools: Community Building
Tuesday, November 14, 10:00am-11:00am, 213 Butler Library | Register

In this lab session, instructors will explore practical strategies for using AI tools to cultivate a sense of belonging, foster interaction, and stimulate intellectual curiosity amongst their students. Instructors who are interested in discussing AI tools in their courses—or embedding them into assignments—might find employing AI in community building a low-stakes and potentially fun way to begin the conversation about AI in their classes.
