  • April 25: How Grammarly, Gemini and ChatGPT can Help with Writing – Or Get in the Way
    The free version of Grammarly has become a very popular tool for helping with writing of all sorts.  How useful has it been for students?  What other writing tools are available to Carleton students (and faculty and staff)? (Melanie Cashin, Kristen Vogel, Wiebke Kuhn)
    Location: Library 306
  • May 2: AI at your Fingertips: What can you use on your Laptop and Smartphone? What AI features are already available to you on your laptop or smartphone?  How does it make sense to use them – or not?  Bring your devices and let’s play and discover! (Don Vosburg, Dann Hurlbert) Location: Hasenstab 002
  • May 9: Using Generative AI to Create Games for Learning We know that game and play are important components for learning.  Developing these resources can be time-intensive.  Let’s experiment how generative AI tools like Gemini and ChatGPT can make this work easier. (Don Vosburg, Dann Hurlbert) Location: Hasenstab 002
  • May 16: GPT-4 as a Language Partner
    Practicing a language with a human is one of the best ways to gain more confidence in speaking – but sometimes scheduling makes this tricky.  Creating simulations for students to practice outside of tutoring hours, using generative AI tools, can provide one more option for practice.  Simulations can also be helpful for practicing debates, or job interviews. (Don Vosburg, Amy Hutchins) Location: LDC243
