This session will dig deep into the sentiments of first-year college students' toward how they use generative AI in their personal and academic lives

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

In this session, we will present data from a large, two-semester study analyzing first-year college students' attitudes toward using generative AI in their academic and personal writing. We present our preliminary findings using textual and sentiment analyses to show nuanced critical literacies that our students have towards this topic. In this session, participants will be able to draw implications from our data to scale at their own institutions. If time permits, we will also demonstrate our Rhetorical Prompt Engineering framework, which we have used to teach students in first-year college writing courses how to ethically collaborate with generative AI to elicit useful, relevant, accurate, and harmless outputs.
