The EAA Education Committee is glad to announce a new education event: “Turbocharge Your Accounting Classes with ChatGPT: A Game-Changing AI Tool!”.
When: September 14, 2023, 11:00-12:30 AM Brussels time
As generative AI continues transforming (some might say: disrupting) higher education, many accounting educators may feel lost and anxious about meaningfully integrating ChatGPT, Bing Chat, or Bard into their teaching and their students’ learning.
Let us help you demystify generative AI in the context of accounting education and dive with us into this engaging session tailored to you! We will delve into the multifaceted applications of ChatGPT, a chatbot that uses natural language processing, to redefine and enrich the accounting educational landscape. We will cover the following topics:
Learning with AI – Student perspective
Dive into tangible examples of how students can seamlessly integrate ChatGPT into their academic arsenal, including techniques for generating practice questions and ways students can utilize ChatGPT as a learning companion to unpack complex accounting concepts.
Teaching with AI – Educator Perspective
Discover how ChatGPT can revolutionize communication with students, course materials, improving exams and case studies. We will discuss best practices for students and educators, ensuring a seamless, enriched, and forward-thinking academic experience.
All hands on deck – How to construct a useful prompt
Learn and apply various prompting techniques and strategies to guide and direct ChatGPT towards meaningful and applicable responses. In this part of the workshop, you will learn how to construct (or “engineer”) prompts which will also help you understand what generative AI can and cannot do at this point in time.
