Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a Partner in the Learning Process

Partnering with Artificial Intelligence (AI) as part of the learning process can feel daunting; where should faculty start and how do they know where to go from here? AI is here to stay, so let’s begin to build the framework in which it participates in our learning spaces as we direct it to do so. Relying on the elements of digital citizenship, we will create guidance to teach students the ins and outs of being an informed AI user and build a framework where you, the instructor, can begin to control the application/outcome of AI’s use in your learning environment.
