Free resource

Instructors and college administrators are grappling with many difficult questions arising from the emergence and public availability of generative AI (GenAI) tools such as ChatGPT:

  • What impact will AI have on post-secondary institutions?
  • Can AI be integrated into higher education in productive and ethical ways?
  • How will teaching and assessment change?
  • What are the implications of AI for professional, institutional, and civic communication?

This free resource provides administrators and faculty with fundamental information about GenAI and its bearing on instruction and institutional policies. Eminently practical and informed by the latest (and forthcoming) technical developments, Talking about Generative AI will be a boon to anyone who is suddenly confronted with the problem of how to understand and address GenAI’s impacts.

AI and Writing is an introduction to generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) and its emergent role as a tool for academic, professional, civic, and personal writing. This book is intended for composition and writing-intensive courses, and for any readers with a general or professional interest in the role of GenAI in writing. While it’s primarily designed for first-year writing courses, it’s also applicable to courses in advanced writing, professional writing, technical writing, business writing, and writing across the curriculum, as well as writing-intensive courses in other disciplines. In other words, it can be used in any course in which students are required to produce texts.
