Conscious Learning and Academic Integrity: Designing Reflective Paths Towards Student Learning

June 1, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from May 29–June 1, 2023.

This 60-minute workshop will address some of the concerns raised by instructors about the effect of ChatGPT and similar AI platforms on academic integrity and deep learning. I propose that by designing a course with regular self-reflection about learning processes, as well as collaborative and responsive exercises between students, we can guide students towards becoming more conscious, active learners who become more invested in their learning processes, and more accountable to themselves for their own learning.

In this workshop, I hope to share the techniques that have been successful for me to replace students’ opportunity to use others’ work and others’ voices, with their own work and voices, and to help students recognize their own strengths. Collaborative exercises will allow attendees to identify, discuss and address practical tools to respond to potential problems of academic integrity and deep learning in their courses.

This workshop will be relevant to instructors across primarily undergraduate levels, but also entrance-level graduate levels, with all modes of instructional delivery. The tools offered here will be adaptable across disciplines. The Learning Outcomes of this workshop will allow attendees will to take away some adaptable templates for course design, as well as some student writing prompts, quizzes and exercises that incorporate the techniques discussed in this workshop.
