Reimagining Teaching & Learning Using Generative AI: Faculty Experiences

October 18 at 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Current conversations on Generative AI have created space for academics to rethink pedagogical practices. Assessment has come up in discussion often and so has the challenges of maintaining academic integrity. In this session, instructors from across our campus discuss their use of generative AI tools for effective teaching and learning.

Panelists:

  • Tamara Ebl, Lecturer—Faculty of Management; CTL Faculty Fellow. A ‘cautious and curious’ voice on the panel, Tamara will share her perspective regarding importance of clarity of guidance in terms of acceptable use of Generative AI.
  • Catherine Higgs, Professor—History & Sociology. Catherine looks for opportunities in class to discuss the Large Language Model, Chat GPT, experiment with it, and explore its limitations, including fabrication, hallucination and plagiarism.
  • Vikas Menghwani, Assistant Professor of Teaching—Earth, Environmental & Geographic Sciences (Sustainability). Vikas is interested in exploring how Generative AI could be used to enrich learning environments and potentially help target higher-level learning outcomes.
  • Firas Moosvi, Lecturer – Computer Science at UBCV, CTL Faculty Fellow. For Firas, Generative AI is an opportunity for students and instructors to learn and teach in new and previously unimaginable ways.
  • Melanie Willson, Assistant Professor of Teaching, School of Nursing. Melanie is intrigued by the potential of generative AI to enhance education, and the balance between innovation and ethical responsibility.
