Reinert Center Hosting Workshop on Teaching with AI


On Tuesday, April 16, José Bowen, author of the award-winning book, "Teaching Naked," and the new release, "Teaching with AI," will be facilitating a workshop for Saint Louis University instructors on Thinking and Teaching with AI.

The workshop, which is being hosted by the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, will be from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Zoom. 

In this workshop, attendees will examine the skills and content that will matter most in this new age of AI, what policies and practices improve motivation and decrease cheating, and why articulation of "quality" is essential. Focusing on the tangible, attendees will also learn techniques to transform assignments and assessments to motivate and engage students by placing greater emphasis on the process and experience of learning.

Registration is required.
