Artificial Intelligence(AI) software programs such as ChatGPT powered by OpenAI have been created in an effort to enhance the human experience by eliminating barriers to access to information. AI is a tool that some equate to the creation of the calculator or the internet. This presentation will explain what Artificial Intelligence is as it pertains to its possible use in Higher Education by our students, faculty, and staff. We will also briefly discuss why students may be inclined to use programs like ChatGPT and how we can better adapt our course material to either incorporate the use of AI or make it nearly impossible to use on assignments in the first place. Ultimately, we believe that AI is not the end of Higher Education but, rather it's a new beginning.


** 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. Check Training Record.


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.
