Why this course?

Many professional development opportunities only scratch the surface with high-level, theoretical overviews. In contrast, the Teaching With Generative AI course will help you apply what you learn by giving you dedicated time to build policies and assignments you can actually use — and you’ll connect with experienced faciltators and peer educators who can help.

Course topics include:

  • Crafting an AI Policy for Your Course
  • Designing Assignments that Integrate Generative AI
  • Navigating Conversations about Students’ Use of AI
