This workshop will help middle and high school teachers discover the potential of integrating ChatGPT into your classroom to enhance student learning and streamline your professional tasks. The workshop will provide hands-on training, practical tips, and creative strategies to make your teaching more effective and your life as an educator easier. The goal of the workshop is to offer an overview of how ChatGPT works, how it is being used (and misused) in classrooms around the country and how to develop some best-practice strategies for teaching and learning. Don’t miss this opportunity to glimpse into the future of education with ChatGPT.

This session will be hosted by Dan Sarofian-Butin, PhD, is a Full Professor in, and was Founding Dean of, the Winston School of Education & Social Policy at Merrimack College. He is the author and editor of 100+ academic publications, including eight books, several of which have been translated into three languages. Dr. Sarofian-Butin has written on the intersection of technology and education for over a decade, including about ChatGPT. This semester, all of his undergraduate students in all of his courses are required to use ChatGPT as their formal teaching assistant. Prior to working in higher education, Dr. Sarofian-Butin was a middle school math and science teacher.

This session is free and open to the Merrimack community and public. The target audience for this session is middle and high school educators. This session will be hosted on Zoom.
