Generative AI technologies, such as ChatGPT, BingGPT, and Midjourney, are revolutionizing the educational landscape, particularly in higher education. Recognizing the significance of these advancements, the CTLD has curated a comprehensive list of resources tailored for faculty and staff. Additionally, the provost has issued an official statement, which also includes recommended syllabus statements.
While the CTLD department doesn’t support technology in the classroom, we can point you in the right direction. From the ITS client portal, you can call their dedicated service desk number or submit a request for classroom tech assistance.
