Provost Wang has asked us to save September 13, from 2 to 4 pm, as Academic Affairs will host a forum in B/401 on “The Impact of Generative AI on College Academic Policies and Pedagogical Practice.”
The Educational Technology Leadership Council is supporting the Provost’s forum and future conversations on AI through a year-long column in the CTL Reflections Newsletter that will offer links to articles that discuss a wide-range of topics related to artificial intelligence (including how it impacts academic integrity–the other AI) and information about calls for proposals, conferences, and events focused on AI and its potential impact on higher education. Be on the lookout for upcoming Mindful Conversation sessions to continue the conversation of AI and its pros and cons.
Please note that ETLC seeks to provide articles from different perspectives. We are not assessing them, nor giving our opinion about them. Some may be downright awful; some may be brilliant. Please keep an open mind and feel free to ignore the ones that do not interest you.
We also invite you to send us the APA references for articles you think might be of interest to someone–even if you have not read it. We will share up to 20 references in each newsletter.
Please send your suggestions to Jacki DiSanto at email@example.com

Fall 2023 Calls for Proposals, Conferences, Seminars, and Workshops
Visit: 2023 CUNY IT Conference Call for Proposals
You have probably heard of ChatGPT, but there are so many more Generative AI applications. Whether you use a word processing tool, a spreadsheet or a slide presentation application; whether you teach, do research, serve on a Committee on Academic Integrity, Assessment or Budget and Resources; whether you work in Marketing and Communications, in Enrollment Management, Advisement, Tutoring or Counseling; whether you are responsible for cybersecurity, monitoring networks or other technical infrastructure; or whether you work on web design or software development…Generative Artificial Intelligence is ever more everywhere. From now on it is Us and It.
Do you already work with It? Are you interested in working with It? Why? Why not? How? How maybe?
The co-chairs of the CUNY IT Conference are inviting all in the CUNY community, as well as people in the industry to share use cases, experiences, philosophical or ethical reflections; propose criteria for evaluation or policies regarding copyright, privacy, or intellectual property; or to otherwise offer fresh and enlightening perspectives on It and Us.
We will consider individual presentations but encourage submission of panels. Panelists can hail from different campuses and may hold different roles. e.g., a panel of Registrars from 4 different campuses or a panel composed of a Registrar, a Director of Financial Aid, an Advisor, and a CIO.
Proposals are due by September 6, 2023. The conference committee will inform applicants of decisions by October 2023.
