Some Ways to Use ChatGPT

Like other automated tools, ChatGPT can be used to make routine or rote work easier. For some examples, you can ask ChatGPT to:

  • Write a simplified explanation for a complex topic
  • Create a syllabus, or a lecture outline
  • Write a complete lesson plan, including readings to assign, lecture or discussion topics, in-class and homework exercises, exam questions, assessment rubrics, etc.
  • Brainstorm ideas for a new research project
  • Write a first draft of [insert whatever you want to write about here]

Of course, you will need to edit all of this, but that is less work than generating the initial drafts.

Then you can use all that time you have saved to:

  • Provide more individualized instruction/mentoring to your students
  • Oh, we're sure you can fill out plenty more bullet points here yourself
