Many people are interested in generative AI tools such as ChatGPT as potential assistants. For this assignment, students in an introductory composition course will use ChatGPT (or a similar generative AI tool) as a brainstorming assistant to develop a research question for a specific project. Through a guided reflective process, students will 1) produce a well-formed, productive research question and a related set of keywords to guide their database research and 2) consider how generative AI tools such as Chat-GPT might be used productively and ethically as drafting assistants.
