Re-Imagining Assessment for a ChatGPT World

Date: Monday, May 22nd

Time: 11 am - 2 pm

Location: NHS 210

In this three-hour session, the CAE will follow up on the various conversations and workshops that were held throughout the Spring semester on the topic of ChatGPT and Artificial Intelligence. With a number of months of experience – not to mention a number of months for the technology to have improved – it seems like it might be time to take a deeper dive into where we stand with this extraordinary new technology. Our day will include a combination of discussions, hands-on exercises with prompts and responses, a discussion around developing guidelines for student use of these tools, and finally, re-thinking a current assessment in light of AI’s capacities. By the end of the day, we hope to be able to bring everyone to a point comfort with the existence of - and hopefully the use of - ChatGPT in their summer or fall classes. 

Prior to the day of the event we will circulate a short reading or two so you can arrive prepared to begin the work. We encourage you sign up for an OpenAI/ChatGPT account ahead of time at chat.openai.com so you can fully participate in the day’s activities. The session will take place in the Center for Academic Excellence, NHS 210, and lunch will be served.
