About this Event
Taking an Educational Research Perspective to Explore How AI Might Impact Student Learning and Success
Event Type: Webinar
Facilitators: Tris Utschig and Hillary Steiner
Use of AI tools such as ChatGPT can impact student learning in myriad ways. These new technologies have potential advantages for cognition during the learning process. They also create risks that can undermine learning. Research on cognition and pedagogical approaches can inform the use of AI tools for learning. Considerations range from how AI tools might reduce cognitive load to free up working memory, to how they support transfer of knowledge or synthesis of information, to critical thinking required to craft meaningful prompts for the tool, to using metacognitive approaches to interpret responses the tool generates. We will briefly demonstrate how the ChatGPT tool functions, and then hold a series of open discussions around knowledge from cognitive science and pedagogical research designed to elicit considerations from multiple perspectives and across multiple disciplines.
