AI Literacy in the Age of ChatGPT

ChatGPT and pedagogy

Thinking about ChatGPT as a pedagogy problem, rather than a plagiarism problem, is a way to approach our teaching generatively.

Scaffolding mitigates library anxiety, imposter syndrome, and accidental plagiarism.

Rather than assigning a big, summative paper or project at the end of the course, breaking it up into stages with student reflection reinforces original work and a growth mindset that can reduce the perceived need for students using a tool such as ChatGPT.
