Who is Writing?
Under the motto "who is writing?", the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar invites students, doctoral candidates, university staff, and all other individuals interested in writing to the 9th Long Night of Academic Writing on 22 June 2023.
In the lower foyer of the university library, Sophie Foster, from Lernraum.Bauhaus and in collaboration with the Mobiles Partizipationslabor, will be hosting a special AI Writing Lab. Here, participants will learn how critiquing AI-generated texts can develop writing skills and recognise scenarios where AI can complement the writing process. The Lab will also encourage discussion on the potential repercussions of AI within academia and its impact on student learning. Throughout the duration of the Lab, participants will be introduced to the AI language generator ChatGPT by reading example texts it has produced as well as trying it out for themselves. From there, its benefits and limitations can be discussed leading to the creation of strategies that strike a balance between the use of AI and traditional writing assignments. The goal is to foster a critical approach to integrating AI in teaching and learning and agree on how we should adopt its use at our university in the future.
Location: University Library, lower foyer. Instructor: Sophie Foster Language: Moderation in english, material in german and english Participation: Registration is recommended due to limited seating.
