Artificial Intelligence is not coming. It is here, and it is here to stay. This presentation examines ways in which artificial intelligence language model chatbots (such as ChatGPT) can be used as an opportunity to rethink and reimagine teaching practices both in face-to-face classrooms and in online environments. Our presentation examines several problems regarding the use of AI in educational settings, including, but not limited to, language and comprehension-related challenges, concern about students’ overreliance on a machine rather than developing their own thinking, and instructors’ apprehension about AI being “the ultimate cheating tool.” Artificial Intelligence poses a threat when we ignore it, forbid it, or fail to do the intellectual and experimental work of exploring its possibilities.

However, our findings show that by employing AI with intentionality and purpose, we can actually encourage creative and critical thinking, facilitate dialog, and reinforce content knowledge in our face-to-face and in our online classrooms. Changing the way we think about and use AI can allow educators the opportunity to create spaces for students to feel less isolated, to help support knowledge acquisition, and to allow for innovative and analytical student-centered thinking, all of which ultimately lead to greater student engagement in our online and face-to-face courses.
