Widespread access to generative AI tools such as ChatGPT are forcing educators to rapidly evolve their teaching practices. Institutions are scrambling to both provide learning opportunities for faculty on proper use, and also address the ever-important issue of academic integrity. 

Faculty have had limited opportunities to sit, think, and talk about the evolution of their pedagogies in response to these technological advancements. Yet, reflection is essential for continuous learning, leveraging technological benefits, peer collaboration, ensuring student-centered learning, and addressing ethical and academic integrity concerns. 

To equip educators with the tools and knowledge to stay relevant and deliver effective, ethical, and student-focused teaching experiences, this Magna Online Seminar features panelists, from diverse disciplines of English, business, and biology, that not only share their own experiences and perspectives with AI, but also facilitate an important conversation that explores the questions we are all wrestling with now and how we are all responding to this new reality. This engaging conversation aims to challenge, clarify, and reevaluate philosophies of teaching and learning, making it a must-watch event. 

Your expert panel, Drs. Lolita Paff, Holly Ryan, and Bryan Wang of Penn State Berks explore the pressing questions and responses to AI, offering a unique opportunity for faculty to reflect and plan for future courses as we navigate the impact of generative AI together. They will also cover: 

  • Thought-provoking questions for educators to evaluate their recent teaching experiences 
  • Stimulating prompts to facilitate well-informed decision making about prospective pedagogical choices in the realm of generative AI 
  • Engaging class discussion prompts centered around generative AI utilization, policy considerations, ethical dilemmas, biases, and the far-reaching consequences on student learning
