 Discipline Communications – Don’t Miss Out •

The OERI – and ASCCC – use discipline list-servs to share information specific to a given discipline. These one-way disciplines will never overwhelm your inbox and being on your discipline’s list ensures you don’t miss out on any discipline-specific opportunities or events. Sign up for an ASCCC list-serv – or list-servs – today.

• February 2023 OERI Discipline Lead Events •

The OERI Discipline Leads regularly host conversations and webinars to share resources, identify needs, and build community. These events are intended for discipline faculty and those who have an interest in the discipline as supporters or advocates. A “conversation” is an informal discussion of a specific topic and will not be recorded. Webinars will be recorded and archived. The ASCCC OERI will provide automated captioning for all webinars. If you would like to request live human closed-captioning for any of our offerings, please contact us by e-mail at least 10 business days in advance.

What Do We Tell Students about ChatGPT? Finding and Building English Open Educational Resources (OER) about Artificial Intelligence (AI) Writing Assistance

Students need guidance about the uses and perils of AI text generators like ChatGPT that can auto-produce plausible academic writing. What OER materials are already available on the subject? Can writing teachers work together to create more materials that are openly licensed so they can be adapted as the software evolves? Can collaborating on such OER facilitate essential discussions of the place of AI tools in the teaching of writing? Join us for a discussion of how OER can help us form our responses to this new, rapidly evolving technology.
