Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Call for Collaborators: AI and SoTL Research Project

Participate in a mega-SoTL research project investigating the impacts of AI on teaching & learning

Thursday, July 6, 2023

The CTE is looking for research partners/collaborators to join a multi-institutional Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research project exploring artificial intelligence (AI) and teaching in higher education. Research teams will be supported by principal investigators at George Mason University, James Madison University, and the University of Virginia (led by the CTE's Jessica Taggart) to investigate a wide range of possible subtopics such as:

  • AI in student support services/academic advising

  • AI and personalized learning experiences/adaptive instruction

  • AI automated scoring and/or providing feedback to students

  • AI and online course design and delivery

  • AI and ethical considerations

  • Investigate students’ perceptions, attitudes, and acceptance of AI technologies (comfort levels, concerns, and potential benefits)

  • Designing "AI-proof" assignments

  • Concerns with plagiarism/policies

  • AI in the disciplines (e.g., STEM, world languages, writing-intensive courses)

Potential roles for faculty, staff, and graduate student research collaborators include:

  • Participating in the design of the research

  • Contributing to data collection in your courses or colleagues’ courses

  • Contributing to analysis of the data collected by the research team

  • Contributing to publication/presentation of findings
