Chat GPT and Teaching and Learning
Update (5/12): We have created a resource page that contains our ChatGPT FAQ along with more comprehensive information about this topic and the new McMaster task force set to explore the potential and challenges it may present to teaching and learning.
Find it on our website: Generative Artificial Intelligence in Teaching and Learning
We have heard from many educators at McMaster who have questions about OpenAI’s chat bot, ChatGPT, and its impact on teaching and learning.
ChatGPT is a chat bot created by OpenAI that responds to user questions or prompts. The text responses that ChatGPT generates closely mirror what a human might write and in many instances are indistinguishable from human writing.
Here at the MacPherson Institute we are working to collect these questions in this FAQ document and provide any answers or guidance that we can. This FAQ document is a living document in that we are actively collecting your questions and adding responses as we can. If you have a question about ChatGPT and teaching and learning at McMaster you can submit it here and we will add it to the FAQs as quickly as we can.
Please note that as a living document some of our responses will change as we learn new information and that new questions will be added as we receive them.
We are also working to collect examples of how educators at McMaster are using or plan to use ChatGPT in their teaching. If you are open to sharing these you can do so here or by getting in touch with Erin Aspenlieder at firstname.lastname@example.orgUpdates
