Artificial Intelligence—especially generative AI—has become a hot topic, and educators and policy makers are scrambling to figure out what to do. Some are excited about the new tools while many are afraid it is going to compromise student learning. Some even see the advent of generative AI as a threat to career opportunities for themselves and for their students. In this presentation, we will explore what we know and what we do not know about the emerging AI technologies and their implications for teaching writing. We will also discuss what we can do to use AI productively while avoiding the possible pitfalls for learning.
