What I Learned by Assigning Generative AI and How You Can Do It, Too

I assigned design students to use ChatGPT and DALL·E 2 in a 200-level Interaction Design course in Spring 2023. Students wrote prompts to create images and text for an open-ended digital storytelling website project and learned these Generative AI tools through use. I will share details about my experience in this session, including assignment parameters, the in-class process, work outcomes, and what I am learning about implementing Generative AI into my teaching. Participants in this session will gain insights into how they can integrate Generative AI use into their assignments through an interactive discussion. We will map Generative AI tool strengths to various course activities that participants share—producing a resource to assist in developing coursework that activates Generative AI skill building and responsible use.

Some content in this session inspired the development of CCA 190, “Creating With Artificial Intelligence: Shaping the Future,” which I will teach in Spring 2024.
