AI Text Generators and Teaching Writing: Starting Points for Inquiry
AI and Teaching Writing: Starting Points for Inquiry, compiled by Anna Mills for the Writing Across the Curriculum Clearinghouse, includes resources to support pedagogical research and discussion about the use of artificial intelligence and its impact upon writing pedagogy.

The site includes resources on language models, learning, and teaching; experimental essays created with OpenAI's GPT-3; questions for writing teachers to consider, and strategies for mitigating harm associated with language models and writing.

The list of resources on the site includes the following topics:

  • Implications for Higher Ed Writing Assignments
  • Sample Policy Statements about Text Generators
  • Using Text Generators for Pedagogical Purposes
  • Detecting AI-Generated Text
  • AI and Creative Writing
  • Prominent Pieces That May Include Hype Or Inaccuracy

Those interested in discussing the topics further are invited to join the AIGeneratorsandTeachingWriting discussion list and contribute to the conversation.
