Generative AI use in college education and faculty professional development (Bow Valley College and Capilano University) (E/SI)

May 1, 2024 14:00 - 15:00 Glen Rm 201-202View map

Generative AI has been disruptive for post-secondary education. In this panel, we will explore three different contexts for implementing generative AI instruction in a community college setting and in a faculty professional development setting. Moderated by a senior leader in teaching and learning, two instructors and an educational developer will share their GenAI use cases. The use cases include creating in-class learning activities, cognitive offloading for assessment design, and increasing the capacity of both instructors and educational developers. Audience members will be invited to ask their own questions of the panelists and moderator, and imagine their own possible use cases.

Stream: Advancing Teaching, Learning and Student Success

This stream will focus on how colleges and institutes orient themselves to ensure the success of their students, create inclusive campus spaces, promote both physical and mental health, and use new technologies to strengthen support services. Sessions will explore how innovative teaching and assessment methods can take learning beyond the typical classroom setting, including virtual and blended learning, traditional Indigenous ways of knowing, and work-integrated learning in the world of AI.
