ChatGPT and other natural language processing (NLP) software are seemingly everywhere, bolstered by investments from (and integration with) Microsoft, Google, and other tech mega-giants. What are instructors to do?

In this interactive workshop, we’ll:

  • Hear from instructors who have integrated ChatGPT and other NLP technologies creatively and productively into teaching and learning
  • Identify what we think makes writing “good” (or less good) in the age of CGPT
  • Brainstorm with other faculty about NLP and teaching/responding to writing: with it, about it, against it, or something else
  • Attendees will leave the session with a clearer sense of if, why, or when they might use (or reject) NLP technologies in their teaching, grading, or otherwise.
