AACTE Lunch & Learn: Designing a Syllabus Using Generative AI

On Thursday, March 21, 2024, from 1:00 – 1:45 p.m. ET, members are invited to attend the AACTE Lunch & Learn: Designing a Syllabus Using Generative AI. 

In this session led by AACTE Innovation and Technology member, Laurie Bobley, Ed.D., of Touro University, attendees will explore how to develop an effective, standards-based syllabus using generative AI and the potential limitations surrounding this emerging technology.  

By the end of the session, participants will be able to do the following: 

  • recognize how AI can be used to create a standards-aligned syllabus; 
  • demonstrate how AI can streamline and optimize the syllabus creation process; 
  • evaluate the pros and cons of using AI to develop a syllabus. 

Bobley, in reflection on March as Women’s History Month, notes that women being further involved in the implementation of AI can create stronger, more equitable technology to be utilized.  

“When AI systems are built by a primarily male workforce, the data and algorithms they use reflect male experiences. This can lead to biased AI that overlooks issues important to women or fails to consider applications that could benefit them most,” Bobley said. “Women bring different perspectives and life experiences to the table, fostering creative problem-solving and innovative ideas. It is promising that many women are leading AI research and driving practical applications of the technology, particularly at my institution. This is further evidenced by the recent formation of an AI advisory committee, where women comprised three-quarters of the chosen members. With a strong female presence, a wider range of voices will be heard, leading to more equitable and impactful AI integration.
