In this two-hour course, participants learn about generative AI, which is a type of AI that creates new content, such as text, images, or other media. They will explore how to use generative AI tools to assist their teaching practice by saving time on everyday tasks, personalizing instruction to meet student needs, and enhancing lessons and activities in creative ways.

Throughout this course, participants will discover proven strategies for working with AI tools and practice using them to plan and update lessons, prepare instructional materials, manage behind-the-scenes administrative tasks, and more.

Participants can take an optional final assessment if they’d like to receive a certificate of completion of the two-hour course.
