Brock Craft, an associate teaching professor in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering, participated in a UW faculty panel presentation about the use of ChatGPT in academia.

Panelists discussed the impact ChatGPT has on teaching, how to make informed decisions about the use of ChatGPT, and generally how to use AI technology responsibly in enhancing student learning.

"One of the interesting challenges for engaging with this kind of a tool, is to understand what its strengths are and what its weaknesses are. And as educators, that's our role, to help guide people to understand how these tools can operate, where we can be led astray, and where they can support us," said Craft.
