These assignments ask students to consider how computational machines have already and will become enmeshed in communicative acts and how we work with them to produce symbolic meaning.

This assignment actively integrates ChatGPT as a virtual research team participant in a student group research project. Each team is provided with a specific topic prompt and a theoretical framework to guide their research. All team members, both humans, and ChatGPT (through a moderator), formulate research questions, undertake research to address these questions, and participate in cross-team peer reviews to evaluate the outcomes of each group. Additionally, a unique aspect of the assignment is for each team member to collaboratively identify the distinctions in writing style and research approach between their human peers and ChatGPT.
