Season 3 Episode 5

Chat GPT & AI in Higher Ed

At a recent forum we hosted on AI in the classroom, faculty shared their excitement, concerns and approaches to integrating AI into their teaching practice. In this episode, we'll bring you highlights from their conversation, as well as interviews and statements with other GU faculty. There have been so many chat GPT articles and insights that it's hard to remember why it's dominating the news cycle. We spoke with computer science professor, Grace Hui Yang, Nick Lovegrove from the McDonough School of Business, Georgetown Computer Science and Linguistics professor Nathan Schneider, and Andy Zeitlin from the McCourt School of Public Policy, as well as Camber Vincent, a Junior in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown, who serves as the president of the student body, to offer some grounding insight.

In this episode of What We’re Learning About Learning, you can expect to hear more about the ways Chat GPT is already integrated into daily processes, and is evolving. Topics include:

  • The ways Chat GPT resembles human intelligence, as well as the ways it doesn’t;
  • How Chat GPT affects students, especially in conversation with Georgetown’s Honor Code;
  • How Chat GPT affects assignment design;
  • What Chat GPT can be used for, as well as where it is not as successful;
  • Considerations for Chat GPT’s use in language-building and idea generation.

To take a deeper dive into both emerging and longstanding literature, see our Resources and Additional Research sections below. There, you’ll find links to various resources and articles cataloging Chat GPT experiences and proposing best practices.
