ChatGPT is controversial. Some schools have outright banned the use of ChatGPT, and many instructors have serious concerns about how students’ use of ChatGPT may negatively impact learning. In contrast, other instructors have actively embraced ChatGPT, incorporating ChatGPT into their courses, and – in some cases – building courses around ChatGPT and related applications.

This presentation will outline when ChatGPT may be useful, and when ChatGPT may not be useful. In cases wherein ChatGPT may be useful, how instructors may consider incorporating ChatGPT into their course offerings will be discussed. In cases wherein ChatGPT may not be useful, how instructors may consider modifying their courses in ways to minimize any negative impact of ChatGPT will be discussed.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
