A Calculator for Writing: Harnessing Generative AI to Develop Instructional Content for Foreign Language Writing

Hands-on Workshop


Szymon Zuberek
Columbia University


Event Description

This event will investigate the use of ChatGTP in the development of instructional content.  Starting with the teaching objectives, the workshop will explore how ChatGTP can be used to assist instructors in curricular development and materials design.  During this session, the participants will gain a better understanding of how generative AI technologies may be used to assist instructors in developing materials for the foreign language classroom. It will further incorporate Microsoft’s Dall-E for text-to-image generation, which may be a fun divergence from text-to-text frameworks and a look at generative mega-models from the angles of materials development and curricular design (i.e. what do these technologies offer both students as well as instructors).
