CITL UIUC Resource on ChatGPT - This document is a guide on how to use ChatGPT for teaching with technology. It explains how AI chatbots like ChatGPT can be used to make summarizing long articles, research papers, and books an easier task. It notes that ChatGPT uses machine learning algorithms and natural language processing techniques to analyze text and extract the most important information, creating a summary based on this analysis. It provides instructions on how to use ChatGPT to summarize articles or text, including typing "TLDR" followed by the link to the article or research paper in the chat box.

Gies AI Syllabus Guidance - See recommended best practices and text to include in your syllabus around the use of generative AI in your course. Clearly articulate to your students your permitted uses, have students document and cite, and make sure they check the accuracy of AI generated content.

ChatGPT and Artificial Intelligence in higher education: Quick Start Guide - This report is published by UNESCO. It provides an overview of how ChatGPT works and explains how it can be used in higher education. The report also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using ChatGPT in higher education. The focus is on how universities are engaging with ChatGPT and other generative artificial intelligence tools. The report emphasizes that AI tools like ChatGPT rely on existing knowledge rather than generating new ideas, and need human creators to continuously add to their store of knowledge.

How ChatGPT can be embraced - not feared - in the classroom - This article from Unnati Narang and Tawnya Means discusses the use of ChatGPT in the classroom. While some may worry that it will make teaching and learning more formulaic, others believe that it can be an effective teaching tool if used correctly. ChatGPT can be used to generate writing prompts, summarize texts, provide definitions, and create lesson plans. It can also be used to simplify materials for new language learners and translate assignments into a student's native language. Despite concerns about cheating, a national survey shows that students and teachers have quickly incorporated ChatGPT into their everyday lives.

Ethan Mollick's article: Catastrophe / Eucatastrophe - The article discusses the concept of eucatastrophe, a term coined by J.R.R. Tolkien to describe a sudden turn of events in a story that ensures the protagonist does not meet a terrible and impending doom. It is more than just a happy ending, as it involves the reversal of a tragic ending, with the entire story rewritten retrospectively. It is a balanced look at what we might consider looking back at this time period and good food for thought.
