Generative AI in Teaching and Learning

Generative AI is becoming deeply integrated in all aspects of our lives, and universities are key institutions for teaching how to use generative AI responsibly and critically. At Laurier, we support faculty members in critically considering the adoption of generative AI in their courses where it aligns with how the technology is changing the way in which the world interacts with the discipline/subject matter. 

These resources are meant as a beginning to conversations about the rapidly evolving potential impacts on higher education that generative AI is having. These are suggestions to support integration of generative AI into your assessments and classroom activities.
