Collaborating with Artificial and Human Intelligences: The Development of Learning Competencies in Times of AI

Leticia Britos Cavagnaro, Designing Learning Futures, Stanford

The availability of ChatGPT and similar tools that can interact in a way that is perceived as human marks a turning point in which artificial intelligence (AI) goes from being a theoretical concept or an algorithm in the background to a day-to-day reality – inside and outside of the classroom. AI promises – or threatens, depending on your stance – to radically transform how we work, how we relate, and, importantly, how we learn. In this workshop, we will actively explore artificial intelligence tools and how to use them to promote the development of learning competencies in our students (and in us, as educators).

You will need your cellphone and a notebook and pen. No need to download anything in advance, or to have access to any tool.

Making the Most of the Team in Team-teaching

Kirstin Haag, Teaching and Learning Hub, Stanford Graduate School of Business

This workshop will discuss prevalent models of team teaching in higher education, including teaching with TAs, as well as best practices and common challenges based on reflections from Stanford faculty members. Team teaching offers a way to model productive collaboration for students and to promote cross-disciplinary connections to help students (and academics) break down silos. The workshop is geared toward instructors who are interested in team teaching, staff who may support team-taught courses, and department leaders interested in promoting team teaching.

The Very Techy Collaborator: Using iPads to Create Picture Books

Erik Ellis, PWR Advanced Lecturer, Writing and Rhetoric Studies

In this workshop, we will share tips and tricks for managing a quarter-long project in which small groups of students use iPads to realize their creative visions. For the past three years, the iPads for Teaching and Learning Program at Stanford has provided iPads to undergraduates in my sophomore-level Program in Writing and Rhetoric course – PWR 2: Once Upon a Cause: Producing Picture Books for Local Children. Having previously taught the course for a decade with traditional art supplies, I will reflect on the rhetorical opportunities and challenges of collaborative digital illustration using iPads, Apple pencils, and the ProCreate illustration app.

Please bring an iPad if you have one. We will also have iPads available to borrow for this workshop.
