General description of the project:
The presenter will guide attendees through a process for integrating Generative AI (GenAI) into their teaching practices. Utilizing the ASSURE Instructional Design Model, participants will be able to follow a systematic approach for integrating appropriate GenAI tools into their teaching context. Integrating GenAI into my teaching practices has been an enlightening journey, revealing several key insights. First, GenAI has augmented my role as an educator, not replaced it. It enhanced the efficiency of content creation and feedback processes, allowing me more time to focus on personalized interactions with students. This integration necessitated a shift from traditional teaching methods to more innovative, tech-integrated approaches, ensuring a blend of human creativity and AI efficiency.
The integration of GenAI also highlighted the importance of a human-centered approach in teaching. Despite its ability to streamline content creation and provide diverse perspectives, the essence of education still relied heavily on human values, imagination, and creativity. Balancing GenAI’s capabilities with ethical considerations and institutional policies was crucial, as it necessitates a responsible and transparent use of technology in educational settings.
