"As instructional designers seek to improve the online learning experience, they are turning to emerging technologies like ChatGPT for assistance. ChatGPT and similar tools use artificial intelligence to generate human-like responses to written prompts. This session will explore the potential and practical applications of using these tools in instructional design.

Participants will engage in a lively discussion about the ways in which generative AI can be used to personalize learning experiences, support collaborative learning, and enhance assessment and evaluation of learner progress and performance. Ethical considerations related to the use of of these tools will also be addressed as well as potential limitations.

This session is intended for instructional designers and educators who are interested in exploring the ways in which generative AI can be used to revolutionize online learning. Participants will share ideas, ask questions, and learn from one another about the exciting possibilities and practical considerations of using generative AI in instructional design. By the end of the session, participants will have a deeper understanding of how generative AI can be used to enhance the online learning experience and will be equipped with practical strategies for incorporating this technology into their own instructional design practice."
