Event Type

Interested in helping students write better research papers, lab reports, or essays, even with the prevalence of AI? This workshop is for you.

Join us April 3rd as Shevaun Watson and David Kocik from the English department show us how to merge the realms of artificial intelligence and rhetorical thinking to enhance student writing. Shevaun and David will begin with an examination of the concept of rhetorical focus – writing that is purpose-driven, audience-oriented, and context-sensitive. Next, through hands-on activities, we’ll use this understanding of rhetoric to revise AI-generated content in a way that infuses it with nuance, detail, and complexity.

This workshop is not a ‘how to’ of AI writing shortcuts. Instead, we’ll leave equipped with strategies to create more compelling writing assignments, and ideas to help students utilize AI for producing sophisticated and audience-specific prose – not generic simplistic text.

This session will be held both in-person and online via Zoom. Registration is not required. However, if you plan to attend in-person please register below – so we know how many much food to order
