Considering Sources and AI through an EDI Lens  – Free Performa webinar – May 24

With Sharon Coyle, Master Teacher Program (MTP), Performa faculty, University of Sherbrooke

Students learn better when they feel a sense of belonging in their college classrooms, and expanding the variety of sources to be investigated can support that sense of belonging.

As we work to improve Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) we encourage a wider search than traditional sources in terms of content, country of origin, format, and more.

This one-hour webinar will explore questions like:

How can I help my students understand the impact of built-in bias in sources, including Chatbots, when they use those tools to search for information?

Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) be used as a source to support Universal Design for Learning (UDL) by helping to level the playing field for students with learning difficulties or students studying in languages that are not their most comfortable communication option?

How can I establish clear guardrails for AI use in my course, including how students are permitted to use, and cite their use of, AI?

In this new learning paradigm where ChatGPT might seem like it can speak in place of humans, this one-hour webinar will suggest concrete steps you can take to help students feel like they have the abilities to find materials that support their own individual voices so they can share their ways of seeing the world.
