The CHR Writing Group welcomes Jennifer Keating (Writing Institute, University of Pittsburgh) for a masterclass on writing, creative expression and AI.

Date: Tuesday, 16 May, from
Time: 11:00 to 13:00
Venue: CHR seminar room

Concerns associated with the role of Chat GPT in crafting written and visual work continues to unfold.  What are the features of communication and expression that distinguish human authorship and creative expression from machine generated materials?  How will this developing AI tool influence your own scholarship or creative expression?  And how will you steward your undergraduate and graduate student or fellows through learning how to use these tools in your teaching and advising?
