ChatGPT and AI's Effect on Community Colleges (Part 1 of 2)
ChatGPT and generative artificial intelligence (AI) create implications for student writing, academic integrity, and, most importantly, student retention. While generative AI will write on behalf of its users, instructional AI is AI that is used to teach writing and thinking skills. Utilization of instructional AI maximizes faculty, rapidly accelerates student feedback, and improves student retention. Many community colleges have had a head start with using instructional AI over the last several years and are well positioned to thrive through this time. In this webinar, you will learn more about how colleges are holistically utilizing instructional AI to both prevent the negative implications of generative AI such as ChatGPT and improve student learning outcomes.
