Beyond the Buzz: A Collaborative Inquiry into AI’s Impacts on Teaching

On Monday, March 11th, The Hub for Teaching and Learning staff presented a session on recent updates and reflections on what it is like to be working and teaching in the current technological landscape with Generative AI tools. A recording of the presentation is embedded in this blog post.

The slides for the presentation can be found here.

The presentation has three main sections, each presented by one Hubster. Carla Vecchiola discusses what it has been like, as an experienced online instructor, to encounter more challenges connecting with students than before. Belen Garcia discusses the importance of effective prompting when engaging with U-M GPT and other Generative AI tools, and introduces some resources on example assignments you might consider using in your classes. And Autumm Caines describes the most recent technological developments, and particularly those that pertain to the University of Michigan specific tools. One tool, Maizey, allows users to develop customized bots that have more specific uses, and Autumm describes a few bots that she has developed. Finally Chris Casey, Director of Digital Education, describes a campus specific development about integrating Maizey into Canvas.

Instructors at UM Dearborn who want to have a consultation with the Hub about generative AI and their own teaching practice can schedule an appointment here.
