ChatGPT Conversation Circles

To provide an even more robust forum for conversation on topics related to ChatGPT, the FDC, together with the Provost’s Office, Associate Provost for Academic Planning & Learning Innovation and Dean of Continuing & Online Education, Committee of Educational Technology, and the Writing Board, will be co-hosting a series of Conversations Circles this February and March.  Following the Conversation Circles, we hope to host an Open Forum in April.  You can join the Conversation Circles in person in the FDC (College Hall 113) or via WebEx (see individual session links below).
