There is a growing interest in AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT and their potential impact on education. While some institutions have concerns about cheating and plagiarism, others see these chatbots as valuable tools that can enhance student learning by providing assistance in various tasks such as creating lesson plans, offering feedback, and reducing administrative workloads.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to explore ChatGPT and would like to learn more, we invite you to join our practical workshop session designed specifically for humanities staff members. Hosted by Karin van Es and Rianne van Lambalgen, this workshop aims to demonstrate the potential benefits and challenges of working with ChatGPT through a series of hands-on exercises. Together with the participants, we will explore and interact with the chatbot, allowing you to experience its capabilities firsthand. Furthermore, we will engage in a broader discussion on the implications of generative AI for teaching and research.

The workshop will commence at 11:00 hrs, and a complimentary lunch will be provided at 12:30 hrs, offering an opportunity for further discussion.


Bring your own laptop and please ensure that you have set up a ChatGPT account prior to the workshop via https://chat.openai.com/.
