4 Hours
Cuyahoga Community College - Parma, Ohio



Are you exploring novel ways to invigorate your curriculum? This workshop introduces the transformative power of generative AI in higher education. Generative AI can create unique content based on trained data, enhancing curriculum design, assignment creation, and student engagement. However, its potential extends beyond tool use, representing a paradigm shift in teaching and learning. This workshop empowers educators to effectively use AI to foster more engaging and personalized learning experiences. Furthermore, integrating AI into teaching enhances educational outcomes and prepares students for a future increasingly influenced by AI technologies. Hands-on activities guide participants through the practical application of generative AI in education. Participate in this workshop to join a vital conversation on the future of education and prepare yourself and your students for the evolving digital age.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or be able to:

  • Articulate the key principles of generative AI and its potential applications in curriculum design, assignment creation, and student learning activities.
  • Demonstrate their ability to craft and refine effective prompts for generating desired outputs from generative AI.
  • Develop and present a lesson plan within a simulated classroom setting, showcasing actionable strategies for integrating generative AI into their teaching.
  • Create a comprehensive action plan with a clear timeline and milestones for implementing generative AI into their teaching, considering ethical implications and potential challenges, with a view towards implementation within the next academic year.

Plans for Audience Participation and Interaction:

This workshop is highly interactive and involves presentations, practical exercises, discussions, and reflective activities.

  • Think, Pair, Share: Participants are introduced to a concept, reflect on it individually, discuss their thoughts with a partner, and then share their insights with the larger group. This activity stimulates thinking about how generative AI can be applied to teaching.
  • Breakout Room Discussions: Participants are divided into smaller groups to discuss specific topics or challenges related to implementing AI into their curriculum.
  • Scenario Analysis: Participants are presented with various scenarios of AI applications in educational settings and work in groups to analyze these scenarios and discuss potential responses and strategies.
  • Classroom Planning Exercise: Participants are tasked with designing a lesson plan incorporating generative AI, share their plan with the group, and receive feedback from peers and the workshop facilitator.
  • Self-Assessments: Participants receive tools to self-assess their understanding of generative AI and its potential applications to their teaching.
  • Five Takeaways: Towards the end of the workshop, participants are asked to identify and write down five key takeaways they plan to implement or share with their colleagues.
  • Action Plan Creation: As a final activity, participants create a detailed action plan outlining how they will implement what they've learned about generative AI into their teaching practice.

Digital Badge, Certificate, and CEUs

All workshop participants can obtain, at no additional cost:

  • A digital badge and certificate that provide a web-enabled, verifiable documentation of your professional learning experience.
  • CEUs, which are awarded by passing the post-workshop learning assessment with a score of 80% or better.
