Teaching Writing in the Age of ChatGPT: Summer Symposium

Generative artificial intelligence “chatbots” like ChatGPT have made an impact in educational spaces since their release in 2022 and their development and prevalence has led many educators wondering how to adapt. Join us for a two-day summer symposium dedicated to the teaching of writing in a ChatGPT world. Come together with thoughtful and talented colleagues to learn more about these emerging technologies, how to adapt current writing activities, and how to think about and plan for the future of writing instruction at all grade levels.

This symposium brings together secondary and higher education practitioners for an in depth exploration of the latest strategies, tools, and approaches in teaching writing in an increasingly digital age. Attendees will engage in thought-provoking keynote presentations, resourceful workshops, and opportunities to think and learn with other curious educators.

Day 1 will offer a variety of approaches to adapting current assignments as well as developing new writing assignments that motivate thinking.

Day 2 will focus on ways in which educators are modifying and updating instruction to teach with – not against – AI tools.

When: Tuesday, July 25 and Wednesday, July 26, 2023; 9:00AM – 2:30PM

Where: Madison College – Goodman South Campus, Madison, WI

Who: Middle & High School Educators, Instructional Coaches, Administrators, and Directors of Instruction.
