As colleges and universities grapple with the (seemingly) rapid public availability of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) platforms like ChatGPT, administrators and teachers are working to better understand the role and impact of GenAI in educational settings. Part of this scrutiny, though, needs to be expanded beyond the classroom to considerations about GenAI and student career readiness. This presentation will address three interlocking questions in order to better prepare administrators and teachers for thinking about how to integrate GenAI technologies into their curricula. First, the presentations will provide a (very) brief overview as to how GenAI works and why it disrupts some of the foundational premises on which contemporary educational practices are based. Second, this presentation will provide some considerations as to how GenAI technologies might be synthesized into various curricula. Third, it will take up ways in which those curricular integrations might best serve student career readiness and workplace preparedness. Note, though, that this presentation is not intended as a comprehensive or definitive address of these subjects but is intended to invigorate conversations among administrators and teachers at UTSA.

By attending this course, participants will be able to:
1. Explore the disruptive potential of GenAI for contemporary educational practices.
2. Understand how GenAI technologies integrate into various curricula.
3. Leverage these curricular integrations to prepare students for the workforce.
