#39 Community of Practice: AI, The Case for Revisiting Assessments and Rubrics in the Age of ChatGPT
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2024
Time: 12pm-1pm
Location: AS-156-A

[Show More Information]

Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Large Language Models (LLMs) tools such as ChatGPT took the academic community by surprise. They posed many challenges for educators, who were divided primarily into two camps. One group went scrambling to search for ways to circumvent LLMs use, while others invested their efforts into adapting their practices. Although there are legitimate reasons to limit students’ use of ChatGPT, a more sustainable approach would be to adapt and incorporate it into the educational process. Assessment tools and rubrics are two areas that educators can start with.

This session will also include a group discussion about the use of re-imagined assessments/rubrics in the world of ChatGPT.
