ACRL-NC Lunch Bytes presents "A chatbot did not write this: The library’s role and partners with AI"

  • February 21, 2024

  • Zoom

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are reaching new levels of sophistication and prevalence, leaving many educators apprehensive about the future of student writing and academic integrity. The library is a natural place and partner for AI education, but what exactly do those roles look like? With an issue as broad as AI, how do we identify topics the library should or should not cover? Who might we partner with for a more comprehensive AI education experience? And how do we address our community members’ concerns in a way that recognizes their anxieties while remaining measured and evidence-based? In 2023, Belk Library partnered with other offices across Elon University to develop a series of workshops aimed at demystifying AI, addressing faculty concerns, and offering ideas for using AI constructively in the classroom and research. We discuss the results of our workshops, share reflections on both the technology and our collaboration with campus partners, and examine ways to move forward in changing times. Moreover, we provide strategies for moving beyond the technology itself and towards a holistic understanding. This approach incorporates questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion; student perspectives and learning outcomes; and navigating the thorny ethical landscape surrounding AI. Presented by: Jesse Akman is the Health & Life Sciences Librarian at Elon University. He is liaison to Elon’s School of Health Sciences and undergraduate life sciences programs, and is also a member of Belk Library’s scholarly communications team. Ellen Cline is the Engineering & Physical Sciences Librarian and works with students, faculty, and staff in the sciences. She has been at Elon University for one and a half years. Alison Van Norman is the Outreach & Marketing Librarian at Elon University. She also works with students, faculty, and staff as the liaison to the Art, Music, and Performing Arts departments.
