Artificial intelligence, generative, and emerging technologies: A guide for the classroom

Many units across campus are meeting to discuss the possibilities and challenges of predictive technologies at Marquette, including the Center for Teaching and Learning. As we all work within our departments and across colleges to make sense of how this technology is affecting Marquette faculty and students, we want to make sure that faculty have access to relevant resources to help them discover what makes most sense for them to know and use.

This semester, we encourage everyone to educate themselves about this technology and start giving some thought to how it works with their teaching practices. The university does not plan to make a uniform policy regarding predictive technologies; the technologies are too new and rapidly developing. We think that the desire of the university will be to provide evidence-informed suggestions for syllabus language at the start of the 2023-2024 school year.

On this page, we will provide different information and opinions about predictive technologies and teaching. If you have materials that you think would benefit others across campus, please send that information to:  We will regularly spotlight different uses of this technology as well as different perspectives about it from a variety of people on campus throughout the semester.

Introductory Materials

1.) What is ChatGPT, the most well-known predictive technology tool at this point?

Watch: ChatGPT: Grading Artificial Intelligence's Writing, an 8-minute clip from CBS Sunday Morning (January 2023)

2.) What do I need to know this semester about this technology in my classes?

Amber Young-BriceDr. Amber Young-Brice, Chair of Marquette’s university-wide Committee on Teaching and faculty in the College of Nursing, recommends this set of resources compiled by Cynthia Alby, coauthor of Learning That Matters: A Field Guide to Course Design for Transformative Education (Article link also here: ChatGPT: Understanding the new landscape and short-term solutions)

3.) What other tools can I use to support student learning, especially in developing critical reading and writing skills?

Lilly CampbellDr. Lilly Campbell, Director of the Foundations in Rhetoric class required of all Marquette undergraduates, recommends that educators consider using educational tools like Perusall, a free and popular collaborative annotation tool embedded already in D2L, or Eli Review, a peer-feedback platform.

For help learning more about AI and generative technologies—what it is, where it comes from, why it’s here, how it works, how to use it, what to think about it, how to discuss using it with your students, how to design your assignments in light of it—please feel welcome to contact the CTL or Maxwell Gray, Digital Scholarship Librarian.
