Generative AI in Teaching and Learning at Northeastern

Mar 29 • 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

With the capacity to rapidly analyze, interpret, and generate text, images, and sound, artificial intelligence tools are transforming how the world works. This revolution is driving educators across disciplines to consider how to integrate these tools into their teaching. In particular, many educators are experimenting with generative AI tools such as ChatGPT, Dall-E 2, and Stable Diffusion. While such tools have the potential to vastly expand students’ creative capacities and contribute to a more equitable educational experience, they also raise issues of ethics and impacts on learning.

In this educator exchange, we will hear from Khoury, CAMD, and CPS faculty on how they have incorporated generative AI tools into their courses. They will share practical strategies for leveraging such tools in assignments while balancing their power and limitations. The Executive Director of Northeastern’s Institute for Experiential AI will also join us to set the context for how AI is shaping society.

As time for Q&A is limited in this session, we invite you to submit your questions in advance when you register for the event. While we may not be able to respond to them all during the event, they will be used to shape this and future sessions on this topic.

Invited guests, hosted by CATLR, will include:

Balazs Szelenyi – Associate Teaching Professor, CPS

Derek Curry – Associate Professor, CAMD

Martin Schedlbauer – Teaching Professor, Khoury

Usama Fayyad – Executive Director of the Institute for Experiential AI and Professor of the Practice, Khoury

This session is only open to Northeastern University students, staff and educators. Please use your Northeastern email when registering.
