Webinar | Using AI to Help Instructors Implement a Course Template

Hosted by Harmonize

Abbie -> ChatGPT: Hey friend. Can you help me write a 200 word conference proposal about how the university I work as it working on integrating AI into our workflow despite some cultural pushback? So far we’ve developed a draft of an AI prompt guide to help faculty build content for their courses, and we’re piloting a tool called Harmonize that can help faculty write engaging Discussion prompts, create learning objectives, and even create rubrics for Discussions or other assignments. Eventually, we’d like to create a GPT for our department, the center for teaching and learning excellence, but we’re not quite there yet.
 
Chat GPT -> Abbie : Certainly! Here’s a draft proposal:
 
Abbie -> The World:  10 minutes of editing the results lead to this proposal so join us to see how your instructors could benefit in similar ways!
 
Presenters:
  • Abbie Stowell, Lincoln Memorial University
  • Marcus Popetz, Harmonize
