AI as an Ally Part 1: Elevating our teaching with AI

March, 14, 2024 | 3:30 pm EST

Presented by:
  • Kate Grovergrys, Spanish Professor at Madison Area Technical College
  • Lauren Rosen, Director, University of Wisconsin Collaborative Language Program


How can we as language instructors leverage the power of AI to support and enhance our teaching? How can AI assist us with time-consuming tasks and serve as a catalyst for innovation? In this first session, we explore the intersection of AI and language teaching, identifying how AI tools can supplement and expand our pedagogical repertoire. We will outline strategies for leveraging AI to support and enhance language instruction, and demonstrate how these technologies can be aligned with the human qualities that define our craft. Attendees will leave equipped with the ability to integrate AI into their teaching in a way that is both innovative and uniquely human.
