Adrienne Phelps-Coco, Executive Director of Teaching and Learning at Harvard’s Division of Continuing Education, involves her students in creating prompts for generative AI, particularly in the realm of course design. She not only teaches them the practical aspects of using AI in education but also engages them in the ethical dimensions of technology. This method could inspire educators in other disciplines to use AI as a tool for stimulating critical thinking and ethical considerations, particularly in fields where technology and ethics intersect. Her approach makes AI an active participant in learning, encouraging students to think deeply about its impact and potential.
