chatGPT – learn more.
I feel excited about chatGPT and figuring out how to leverage it for academic, professional, instructional and personal purposes.
Think about the possibilities for personalized tutoring, grading, and feedback for online learners that are just in time. The possibilities are so exciting.
I am also excited about how it will reinforce the need for the designs of authentic online assessments, and provide a context for instructional design discussions with online faculty about aligning activities, with objectives and assessments and how to approach assessments, expectations, and instructions.
What I am not crazy about is the freak out on learners cheating, and how very damaging the subsequent rhetoric is on many levels… and how administrators, faculty, and vendors may respond.
Change is certain. We need to evolve.

A Special Note About the Use of Artificial Intelligence for Coursework
Originality is the cornerstone to all academic endeavors. We stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us to teach and learn, research, and analyze to produce newly insightful work. The expectation of this course and its instructor is that all work produced for a grade will be the sole product of a student’s endeavors to meet those academic goals.
Students are encouraged to use artificial intelligence among many other (re)search resources, if a student finds the resources a useful tool. Students must not substitute the substance of their work with the results of such (re)search tools, however, as that act would contravene the rules academic integrity and their underlying academic values.
For undergraduates, please note that assessments, and course activities and interactions will ask you to synthesize readings, lectures, and course interactions/discussions. Course assignments are intentionally designed to stimulate and develop critical thinking and individual skills, understanding and innovation. For graduate students, please take careful note that your contributions and written course work must respond to the particularized learning within this course. Course activities, assignments, and interactions are designed to hone your academic skills and abilities to interpret course content, activities, interactions and materials in the context of particularized queries, thought, and research.
