Spring AI resources (Mar 20, 2024)

Dear Faculty,

Spring Quarter is approaching, so I wanted to remind you of the AI resources we have available on our website (also linked below). Additionally, we will be hosting a student panel event on April 2: Exploring AI in the GSB Classroom. It will be a great opportunity to hear from students on their impressions and experiences with AI in the classroom.

I look forward to seeing you soon. May you have a terrific Spring!

Best,
Grace Lyo
Assistant Dean and Director
Teaching and Learning Hub

Upcoming Events

  • April 2: Exploring AI in the GSB Classroom — Student Voices Panel @ 2:00–3:00 pm PT. In this virtual panel discussion with GSB students, you’ll hear students discuss their experiences around artificial intelligence in the classroom. Students will share how they have used AI tools productively in the classroom, the guidelines and support they have found useful when learning to use AI, and their experiences with balancing AI use and deep thinking. Time for open discussion between faculty and the student panel to discuss helpful future steps will follow. This event is presented in partnership with GSB faculty facilitators from the AI Faculty Committee. Learn more | Register here

Reminders

  • Watch the recording of the GSB faculty panel event, Exploring AI in the GSB Classroom — Faculty Voices. Learn how GSB faculty have incorporated AI tools into their courses and what they have observed about students’ use of AI. Ethan Mollick, Associate Professor at Wharton, also discusses his approach to AI in the classroom.
  • Course Policies on Generative AI Use. Find sample syllabus statements for AI tool use and general tips for setting your course approach to AI. This resource provides strategies for any approach to AI tools, whether students are allowed to use them freely, with limitations, or not at all. 
  • Starting Small with AI in the Classroom. Visit our resource with small-scale and easy-to-implement ideas for adapting your course in the AI era. Learn more about setting your course approach to AI use, exploring AI with short activities, and promoting student learning whether or not students are using AI tools.
  • Plan to set aside time for course evaluations at the end of the quarter. One of the simplest ways to ensure you get good and actionable course feedback is to carve out class time for students to complete their evaluations. We recommend you consider setting this time aside now so that you will be prepared at the end of the quarter. Reach out to us if you’d like a consultation on ways to capture course evaluations.
