    AI for Everyone 

    Special Focus: AI Detection Tools & International Students

    This session will also briefly review information presented in the TurnItIn AI Module workshop on October 25 (see recording link below).

    We might also have time for a general discussion about topics such as how you’re using Artificial Intelligence (AI) like ChatGPT, Claude, Elicit, or AI-enhanced modules in existing software in your work—or what you see students and colleagues doing. Come listen in if you’re curious, even if you currently are not using any AI tools. We will schedule another discussion in December.
