New GenAI workshops can help train U-M in new technology


A new series of free generative artificial intelligence workshops is available to help U-M faculty, staff and students stay on the cutting edge of advancing GenAI technology.

The workshops are designed to explore the applications and implications of GenAI in the classroom and provide hands-on experience with U-M’s new AI services, such as U-M GPT and U-M Maizey.

Workshop topics range from Generative AI Basics to Leveraging Generative AI to Create Imagery, and are offered at multiple learning levels from beginner to advanced. More than 500 people have attended the new workshop series since it launched earlier this semester, and feedback has been positive.

“I really appreciated seeing how to use U-M Maizey in real time and that there was a project set up that we could interact with,” said Sara M. Samuel, an informationist in the Taubman Health Sciences Library.

The instructional series was developed through the collaborative efforts of Information and Technology Services and the Teaching and Technology Collaborative.

The 90-minute workshops are offered remotely and also are available on demand. An up-to-date schedule of workshop offerings are available on the Instructional Support Training page of the ITS website.

“The workshop demonstrations and the opportunity to try out the tools were helpful,” said Sandra Alberto, a research development specialist with the Medical School. “These GenAI workshops have been so valuable to my work.”
