Chat GPT Across the Curriculum:
What is it? How can we respond constructively?

Date: February 21, 2023
Time: X-period
Location: BHCC
Facilitators: Dr. Jen Talbot, Dr. Amy Hawkins, and Dr. Patty Poulter

Many of you have probably seen the flurry of thinkpieces that came on the heels of the release of Chat GPT, a third-generation GPT chatbot developed by Open AI. Chat GPT has been fed the largest corpus of any chatbot to date, and as a result is faster and more convincing than previous generations. Its release creates greater urgency around some of the existential, philosophical, and ethical questions surrounding AI; it also accelerates the need for pragmatic strategies in the educational sphere. This workshop will provide an overview of Chat GPT’s capabilities and a collection of suggested approaches, as well as an opportunity to collaboratively brainstorm likely effects in our respective disciplines and assignment-specific strategies to address those effects.
