Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) Opportunities and Resources

Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) is reshaping higher education by integrating artificial intelligence with generative models to reimagine learning experiences and enhance resource accessibility. With its broad reach across disciplines and endless potential, USC faculty and Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) are encouraged to explore this technology to prepare students for success in an ever-changing global landscape.  

Provost’s Inaugural AI Teaching Fellowship 

Ten faculty from across the University were selected by the Office of the Provost and the Center for Teaching Excellence to join the Provost’s Inaugural AI Teaching Fellowship. 

  • Allison Byxbe, Darla Moore School of Business 
  • Oz Ince, Darla Moore School of Business 
  • Shan Qiao, Arnold School of Public Health 
  • Gareth Rees-White, College of Arts and Sciences 
  • Omar Roy, School of Music 
  • Michael Stoeltzner, College of Arts and Sciences 
  • Hengtao Tang, College of Education 
  • Sicheng Wang, College of Arts and Sciences 
  • Yanfeng Xu, College of Social Work 
  • Yanan Zhang, Arnold School of Public Health 

Over the duration of the 12-month program, participants are exploring the integration of GenAI into the instructional design of a course that will be offered in Fall 2024. They will assess the impact of GenAI integration on student learning and disseminate their findings at a campus-wide event. 

Teaching with Artificial Intelligence Course 

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and the Office of the Provost extend an invitation to full-time faculty at USC's Columbia campus, Palmetto College campuses, and Schools of Medicine to enroll in an online asynchronous course on Teaching with Artificial Intelligence (AI) offered through Auburn University's Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning. The course consists of 8 modules, and upon completion, participants will receive a badge. For further details and registration for the course, visit Teaching with AI Course 

GenAI Syllabus Policy 

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) recommends including a GenAI policy in course syllabi. The policy establishes guidelines for GenAI utilization in coursework and assessments. Integrating a GenAI policy in syllabi fosters transparency, academic integrity, and student preparedness. Visit Example Syllabus Statements to view example policies (Generative AI Tools Not Permitted, Generative AI Permitted in Specific Contexts and with Acknowledgment, Encouraged Use of Generative AI Tools in Coursework).
