Expand your knowledge by learning from researchers, scholars, and students

This series enables faculty members to share their dedication and enthusiasm for their research, contributing to the creative atmosphere. The initiative is made possible due to IUSON's commitment to expanding education and perspectives.

AI in Nursing

Join Maggie Gilchrist, MA, and Douglas Jerolimov, PhD, from IUPUI's Center for Teaching and Learning to discover how artificial intelligence and ChatGPT can help and/or hinder goals in nursing.

This 90-minute workshop offers a space for Nursing faculty to explore how best to leverage generative AI ethically in their classrooms while also mitigating the harm these tools can cause. Maggie and Doug will discuss possible ways to incorporate ChatGPT into nursing curriculum, as well as show ways ChatGPT can "proof" an assignment.

Presenters also will share IU policies and syllabus language, best practices, and host a 30-minute workshop where they'll discuss ways to incorporate ethical uses of AI. (Please bring a sample assignment from your course. The assignment does not need to already implement AI.)
