Elkana Center Facilitates University-Wide Discussion on ChatGPT

April 17, 2023

ChatGPT, an AI chatbot that mimics human writing patterns, has been making headlines over the past months, especially regarding its impact on higher education.  

At the end of March, the Pro-Rectorate of Teaching and Learning and the Elkana Center held an open forum for academic staff on this topic. Colleagues from across the university shared concerns and strategies for adjusting to ChatGPT and generative AI, both for coursework and more widely in academia. Kaitlin Lucas, the Elkana Center's Academic Technologist, provided a short introduction on how ChatGPT works and its implications for academia, which was followed by an open discussion moderated by Pro-Rector of Teaching and Learning Tim Crane.  

CEU community members can find resources for ChatGPT and generative AI, including slides from the forum and practical considerations, in the latest Elkana Center newsletter [CEU login required].
