Teaching Lab for AI Tools: Community Building (For Faculty)

February 27, 2024
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

A 60-minute workshop for Columbia Faculty. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the landscape of teaching and learning in higher education. This spring, we are hosting a series of labs where faculty and CTL staff will explore generative AI tools and their potential applications in the classroom. If you’re looking for a supportive space to explore the ways generative AI tools can be used to enhance teaching and learning, join the CTL for this Faculty Lab for Teaching with AI Tools! 

In this lab session, instructors will explore practical strategies for using AI tools to cultivate a sense of belonging, foster interaction, and stimulate intellectual curiosity amongst their students. Instructors who are interested in discussing AI tools in their courses–or embedding them into assignments–might find employing AI in community building a low-stakes and potentially fun way to begin the conversation about AI in their classes.  

You do not need any prior experience with AI tools to participate in these sessions. All that is needed is a laptop. Since each lab session will give you the option to explore one or more AI tools, you may need to create free accounts with various AI tools before the start of the session, and facilitators will reach out beforehand with more information. 

Unable to join the Faculty Lab for Teaching with AI Tools? Engage with the CTL on-demand resource: Considerations for Artificial Intelligence in the Classroom. You can also schedule a consultation to chat with the CTL about generative AI in teaching and learning, or find other opportunities on our CTL events calendar.
