Write@UGA 2024 Workshop: Teaching Writing in the Context of AI

Delivered by featured guest speaker Annette Vee, associate professor of English, University of Pittsburgh.

How do large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT work, and how are undergraduates using them now? How might faculty take advantage of the benefits of LLMs to boost learning across the curriculum? How might we do so ethically, and how should we respond when students lean on the technology too much? This workshop will provide a brief introduction to LLMs; examples of how faculty and students have been using LLMs in undergraduate courses; and support for adapting your assignments to foster AI literacy and subject knowledge. We’ll have time to discuss your courses and assignments, so please bring questions!

The theme for Write@UGA 2024 will focus on the impact and application of generative AI (e.g., ChatGPT) on writing across the curriculum. The featured guest and keynote speaker is Dr. Annette Vee, associate professor of English and director of the Composition Program at the University of Pittsburgh. In addition to a morning keynote, Vee will also lead a teaching-focused workshop in the afternoon. Her recent work on text-generating technologies (i.e., TextGenEd) and larger research agenda on the effects computational technologies have on writing and rhetoric make her an ideal scholar to welcome to campus to work with our community on developing appropriate, flexible responses to emerging AI technologies that support UGA’s motto: “to teach, to serve, and to inquire into the nature of things.”

Write@UGA 2024 is generously sponsored by the following units: Center for Teaching and Learning, Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, Jill and Marvin Willis Center for Writing, Office of Instruction, and Office of Research. 

Write@UGA is coordinated by Lindsey Harding and Elizabeth Davis.
