New events at UNMC are getting underway to keep the campus discussions going around generative artificial intelligence issues.

A first-time generative AI symposium is scheduled for July 23 on campus, and UNMC and University of Nebraska at Omaha faculty, staff and students are invited to submit proposals.

In addition, a monthly chat series will be held on AI, with the first occurring starting in June.

Both events are organized and sponsored by the UNMC AI Task Force, co-chaired by McGoogan Library Dean Emily Glenn and Rachel Lookadoo, JD, assistant professor of environmental, agricultural and occupational health in the UNMC College of Public Health.

Submit a proposal

The Generative AI at UNMC Summer Symposium chairs will consider submissions for presentations from UNMC and UNO faculty, staff and students. Presenters can explore aspects of a research question, process, project, policy or tool that uses generative AI technologies.

Presentations will include slides, live demonstrations or other visual examples and can be up to 10 minutes long, including questions and discussion. Presentations will occur simultaneously at stations, with participants moving around the event space. All stations will include internet-enabled screens with laptop connections for sharing slides, live demonstrations or other visual examples.

UNMC and UNO faculty, staff and students interested in presenting:

  • Submit a proposal by June 7 at this link.
  • Presenters will be notified of acceptance by June 14.

With questions, contact Emily Glenn or Rachel Lookadoo.

Here are the details:

Generative AI at UNMC Summer Symposium

In July, the McGoogan Library, along with the UNMC College of Public Health, UNMC Office of Faculty Development and UNMC Academic Affairs, will host Generative AI at UNMC Summer Symposium.

This symposium offers a forum to bring together educators, instructional designers, administrators, librarians and technologists from UNMC and UNO to consider the impacts of generative AI on education.

It offers a chance to strengthen UNMC’s community of practice that is developing around AI use and show what people on campus are doing in this space.

Topics could range from use of generative AI in assignment creation or grading, information literacy instruction, ethics of generative AI in education, generative AI-enabled tools and educational research, and deepfakes and creative works in education.

It will be held Tuesday, July 23, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Truhlsen Events Center.

The symposium will be free and open to members of the UNMC and UNO communities.

What’s New in AI at UNMC? 

This monthly chat series follows the work of the UNMC AI Task Force. This series contributes to the UNMC community of practice and occurs in coordination with the summer symposium.

The new monthly online discussion series will focus on what’s new in AI with UNMC colleagues. This first discussion will focus on generative AI guidance from professional associations and research institutions that may impact UNMC faculty and staff.

Future discussions will include topics such as: reviews of current AI projects at UNMC, updated AI policies and protocols and emerging topics in the field of generative AI.

This series, which is open to all UNMC colleagues, will be conducted via Zoom and is presented UNMC AI Task Force co-chairs Rachel Lookadoo and Emily Glenn.

The first chats will be:

  • June 19, 9-10 a.m.
  • Aug. 21, 9-10 a.m.
