    Presenters: Caron Martinez (Senior Director, Center for Professionalism and Communications, Kogod School of Business), Jason Fabrikant (Senior Professorial Lecturer, Justice, Law & Criminology) & Isabel Maceiko (Coordinator, Center for Professionalism and Communications, Kogod School of Business)

    Time: 3:10 PM – 4:00 PM

    Session Description

    With the temptation to turn to generative AI as a shortcut or substitution for their own ideas, students need to engage in classroom activities that develop trust in expressing their ideas and practice responding to the ideas of others. These social bonds develop their emotional intelligence and give them confidence to team up with classmates. In this session, we’ll share activities transferable to any discipline or program that promote sharing of background and identity to find common bonds, teach active listening and questioning skills, and lead to increased self-awareness. With this foundation, students are more likely to brainstorm together and provide feedback on research and ideas in class.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Identify, discuss, and distinguish the specific teachable emotional intelligence skills so that students grow in content knowledge, self-awareness, and collaboration
    • Design classroom activities that are social, co-creative, and generative while eventually supporting scaffolded aspects of key assignments (such as group brainstorming and peer review)
