Open Education Week 2023 Showcase

Learn about other course material options, including free resources you can edit and enhance. Also, nominate an instructor for the first-ever Open Educators Award.

The showcase will be an opportunity to hear directly from instructors who have adopted open and affordable materials and learn more about how students received their new materials. The event will kick off with a talk from Amanda Hurford (Scholarly Communications Director at the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana) about large-scale open education efforts in Indiana. Then a panel of IUB's 2020 and 2021 Course Material Fellowship Program (CMFP) fellows will explore the challenges and benefits of transitioning from a traditional textbook to other alternatives. Lunch will be provided, followed by an opportunity to talk one-on-one with CMFP fellows and IU Libraries staff about course material development options, tools, and support.

Attendees are welcome to drop in and out of the event as their session allows, but registration is required.

Exploring the Potential of Generative AI

In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn about generative AI technologies such as image generators like Dall-E and text generators like ChatGPT.

During the workshop, participants will have the chance to use both technologies. Through discussions and presentations, we will also consider the applications and implications of these technologies.

Please note that to participate in the hands-on parts of the workshop, participants will need an OpenAI account for access to Dall-E and ChatGPT. If you don't already have an account, we encourage you to go to ChatGPT's site and sign up beforehand to ensure a smoother experience during the workshop. For those who are unable to or prefer not to create an account, we will have alternate means by which you can participate.
