From AI-Aware to AI-Prepared: Designing Assignments and Assessments to Support Student Success

In just two months, ChatGPT reached 100 million users, sparking a surge in AI awareness. With this awareness came new questions, like "Will ChatGPT replace me as a teacher?" "Will my students use AI to do their work for them?" and "What might teaching and learning look like in the era of generative AI technologies?" This workshop aims to prepare teachers to support student learning with AI through practical tips, frameworks, and ready-to-implement strategies for (re)designing assignments and assessments. Teachers will walk away with concrete tools and ideas to elevate their teaching in the era of generative AI technologies!
