Including AI as an expected part of a course: Opinion


In a recent article for The Conversation, Terri L Griffith of Simon Fraser University discusses how AI tools such as ChatGPT have become an expected part of her technological innovation course. Griffith argues that “5T thinking”–which considers a set target and the times, talent, technology, and technique needed to achieve it–can be used systematically by professionals to ensure that they stay current with tools and workflows. The author writes that while students must learn how to use existing innovations, instructors must also keep their syllabus up to date and ensure that students understand the expectations for assignments. “Guidelines in work and education need to keep pace and be thoughtfully aligned to how knowledge is constructed in different fields,” writes Griffith.
