About the Course

Despite what you may have heard, ChatGPT offers exciting possibilities for supporting innovative teaching and personalized education. This course provides practical techniques that any educator, from K-12 to higher education, can use to help support their teaching. No experience with ChatGPT, prompt engineering, or Generative AI is required. In this course, you will learn how to do exciting things to support your teaching and student learning, such as: 1. How to brainstorm lesson plans that integrate learner interests and needs, such as generating a lesson plan to teach fourth graders about fractions using concepts from Pokemon 2. Create interactive games and turning them into concrete educational materials that you can print, such as creating a game inspired by World Cup Soccer and creating a PDF of the necessary game pieces 3. Generating engaging class activities, such as having students design fictional characters based on vocabulary and then generating funny fill in the blank stories based on the dialog 4. Helping students think of new and innovative ways of solving problems, such as generating possible ideas for building a bridge out of paperclips and plastic bottles that could support a person 5. Generating personalized quizzes on the fly that students can use to test themselves on topics and incorporate their interests, such as creating a Geometry quiz that a student can customize on the fly to use questions based on BMX bicycle racing The techniques taught are adaptable to almost any subject and student level....

It was an interesting course and helped me wonderfully in my teaching. I do not have to worry about next week, what else will we have to teach? It is very good.

I learned how to use ChatGPT to develop more engaging and effective lesson plans, create personalized learning experiences for my students, and provide support for students with disabilities. It is a valuable resource for any educator who wants to learn how to use AI to improve their teaching practice and better support their students.

This course is great for teachers who are beginning their journey with ChatGPT and AI in education. It helps them to think about how to use AI as a tool for amplifying learning, both with and about AI.

The course is great for primary and secondary school teachers. I think that it would be even much better course if there would be much more practical examples and teaching approaches that can be used in higher education and to PhD level students.

The other two courses by this instructor were excellent. This one, however, seemed to have been thrown together. It didn't have innovative ideas, and the fourth grader theme got tiresome. There were also many misspellings and other such issues.

I think this was a rather superficial course., and many of the videos were too long and boring. What I liked was the suggestion to use ChatGPT for creating concepts for lessons. I will use that in the future to get inspiration, even though I think that most of the suggestions from ChatGPT won't work in my context, they will rather function as a starting point that I will need to adjust. However, the course leader seems to be very enthusiastic about the technological possibilities of ChatGPT but neglects many of the risks it brings along. I missed critical reflection about these risks that prepares teachers better to using ChatGPT in their own teaching. For the assignment, there was not any quality check, in the second I had submitted it, I already received the certificate. To me this looks like I could have typed in any text, even text completely unrelated with the tasks, and would have received a certificate. Altogether, this course was a rather disappointing experience.

Embarrassing content. It's a pity. Never do it for money!

This will be the first class I would suggest to teachers considering the impact of AI on teaching. A tool that provides superpowers to magnify the work they are already doing. A way to provide differentiated and personalized instruction.

I wish I had this tool when I was an Adjunct Professor. I could have provided a much richer experience for my students

It is a very nice, well-crafted course. Very clear. It comes with many examples, that can give us good ideas. However, I was expecting a course that would have been dedicated to higher education, while examples are focused on 4th grade (very great examples, nicely done, detailed, etc.). That's the only reason why I would give 4 stars instead of 5 to this course, which is really worth being followed anyway.

The "Innovative Teaching with ChatGPT" course from Vanderbilt University on Coursera surpassed my expectations in terms of ease of understanding, clarity, and immediate usefulness. The instructor presented the course content in a clear and concise manner, breaking down concepts into digestible chunks. The practical strategies and techniques provided throughout the course were immediately applicable, offering valuable insights into integrating ChatGPT into the teaching process. Real-world examples showcased the potential applications of ChatGPT in enhancing teaching and learning outcomes. Overall, I highly recommend this course to educators seeking to leverage artificial intelligence technology to create engaging and innovative learning experiences for their students. I used my new skills to assist in creating this review

After 21 courses at some of the most prestigious universities in the world, I know a gifted educator when I observe one. Mr. Jules White makes everything he teaches come to life with his warm, conversational style and wit. I consider myself very fortunate to have taken his courses. I look forward to utilizing ChatGPT in the classes I teach in the coming months and years!

Course is very interesting and easy. However if you do each and everything practically it will be more helpful. Moreover there are large number of students / peoples want to learn via coursera having large number of financial issues. Therefore it is also requested that all courses may be granted on 100% Financial Aid specially for poor / backward countries / areas.

Impressive, very useful, direct, and practical. All we, teachers, need for instructing our students. After all, we only need schools, around the world, to realize ChatGPT cannot be banned or hidden anymore. Students need to know the real way to use the AI properly.

A great introduction to prompting patterns for educators. Sure to help broaden the understanding of potential applications that can improve the quality of teaching and learning and provide some assistance to time-poor teachers.

Brilliant! This course inspired my creativity and showed me 3 lesson plans and crazy game ideas using ChatGPT. This usage can definitely be used in real-life lesson planning for university/school. Thank you, Prof. Jules.
