Academic AI

ITS is partnering with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to provide guidance and resources related to emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, such as ChatGPT. We are pleased to announce "Advances in Augmented Instruction," a micro-credential program that prepares faculty for responsible uses of generative AI, including classroom and research applications. Faculty interested in participating during the 2023–24 academic year are encouraged to complete the Advances in Augmented Instruction interest form. In the meantime, we encourage you to join the CTL Faculty Community on Canvas for helpful considerations and resources related to AI.

We look forward to working with you this semester!
