How to augment a Course with AI and Student Personas

As an educator in the field of business analysis, I've always sought innovative ways to enhance the learning experience for my students. My latest experiment (see below) into this endeavor involved leveraging ChatGPT to not only understand the learning process better but also to tailor it to individual student needs. Here's a glimpse into this fascinating journey.
It began with identifying eight phases of a learning process with ChatGPT. These phases ranged from orientation to reflection and evaluation, encompassing the entire spectrum of a student's learning journey. The goal was to understand how students navigate through these phases and how they could be supported in each step.
Building on these phases, I adapted them into a model for student personas. This involved considering various aspects of a student's academic life, personal characteristics, and learning styles. From this model, I created ten distinct student personas. Each persona represented a unique combination of experiences and challenges in their learning journey, reflecting the diversity in learning styles and experiences.
To bring these personas to life, I crafted short profiles for each, outlining their strengths, weaknesses, and unique learning paths. These narratives gave depth to the personas, making them more relatable and real.
The next step was to rework the eight learning phases, focusing on how ChatGPT could assist students in progressing to the next level. This involved tailoring specific strategies and tools offered by ChatGPT to address the unique needs and challenges of each persona. 
To delve deeper, I let ChatGPT generate student testimonials. These narratives detailed their difficulties and how an AI-augmented learning process could assist them. It was a way to visualize the practical application of AI in educational settings and its potential to personalize learning. 
Shifting to my role as a business analysis teacher, I used ChatGPT to generate use cases for each of the eight phases of the learning experience. The AI model provided insights on how it could facilitate, widen, and deepen students' understanding in various areas of business analysis, such as context analysis, stakeholder management, and scenario planning. 
I applied this approach to several key topics of my course, including context analysis, stakeholder analysis, opportunity & risk assessment, scenario analysis, prioritization, planning, and budgeting. For each topic, ChatGPT helped create tables that outlined how it could assist students in different stages of their learning journey. 
These tables proved to be a valuable asset, providing me with insights into how AI could aid my students through the eight phases of learning each topic in my course. While they didn't cover everything I teach, they offered a solid understanding of the challenges students might face and how they could be overcome with AI's help.
From this, I derived recommendations for each student persona on how to progress in my course, using ChatGPT's capabilities. Finally, I summarized the professional and digital skills that students would develop through this AI-augmented learning process.
Although this exercise is not exhaustive and may not be perfect from a pedagogical standpoint, I found it incredibly inspiring. It opened my eyes to the potential of AI in education, not just as a tool for information but as a means to personalize and enhance the learning experience.

This post has been cowritten with ChatGPT. Please beware that AI is fascinating and can catch your full attention for hours. Get the balance right! > more?

The Experiment

Me.

List the students' 8 main phases when learning a new topic.

ChatGPT (team edition).

Learning a new topic typically involves several distinct phases. Here are eight main phases students generally go through:

  1. Orientation: This initial phase involves the student becoming aware of the new topic and understanding its relevance. It includes developing an initial interest or recognizing the necessity of learning the topic.
  2. Exploration: Students start to explore the basics of the topic. This phase is marked by curiosity and general overview, often without deep understanding. They gather resources, ask introductory questions, and identify key concepts.
  3. Foundation Building: In this phase, students develop a foundational understanding. They learn fundamental principles, theories, and terms that are essential to the topic. This phase often involves memorization and comprehension of core ideas.
  4. Conceptualization: Students begin to connect different ideas and concepts. They start to understand how different parts of the topic interrelate. This phase is crucial for developing a deeper understanding and is often where critical thinking starts to play a role.
  5. Application: This practical phase involves applying the learned concepts to solve problems or create something new. It's where theoretical knowledge is tested in practical scenarios, which aids in solidifying understanding.
  6. Analysis and Synthesis: Students analyze and synthesize the information, understanding the nuances and complexities of the topic. They might compare and contrast with other knowledge areas, identify patterns, and critique the concepts.
  7. Mastery: In this phase, the student has a thorough understanding and command of the topic. They are able to discuss it confidently, answer complex questions, and might even start to challenge established ideas or propose new perspectives.
  8. Reflection and Evaluation: The final phase involves reflecting on what has been learned, how it was learned, and evaluating the depth and breadth of the knowledge acquired. This can lead to recognizing areas for further learning or consolidation.

Each student might experience these phases differently, and the duration of each phase can vary depending on the complexity of the topic and the individual learning style.

Rethinking Exams in the Age of Chatbots

Today's experiment explores the potential of ChatGPT to assist me in the realm of exams, particularly within my field of teaching, Business Analysis. Can ChatGPT create a question for an exam? Indeed, it can do even more! In the experiment below, ChatGPT showcases (to varying extents) its ability to not only generate an exam question but also to engage in several related tasks: Generate a difficult critical question Solve the question Critically evaluate the solution (its own solution!) Attribute a mark between 1 and 6 Attribute a severe mark between 1 and 6 Defend a mark Refute a mark Generate a variation of the question which is difficult to solve Generate a variation of the question which is even more difficult to solve Give a correction scale with marks from 1 to 6  The impact of AI and chatbots like ChatGPT impact on university exams is becoming increasingly evident. Students and teachers alike are beginning to discover these tools, questioning their potential to generate, cor

Harnessing AI to Refine Educational Courses: My Experience with ChatGPT's Capabilities

In a recent interaction, I showcased the potential of OpenAI's ChatGPT in assisting educators to refine their course structures. My experiment began by predefining a context using a comprehensive list of Business Analysis Techniques. Following this preprompt, I presented a current undergraduate course structure that needed modification. The goal? To identify and recommend new Business Analysis techniques appropriate for each chapter of the course.   The Power of Contextual Communication with ChatGPT One of the most striking elements in this experiment was the emphasis on context. My initial "preprompt" set the stage by providing ChatGPT with a menu of options to consider. This allows for a directed, topic-specific conversation, where the AI can pull from a given set of data. The "postprompt" then elaborated on the current course structure, allowing ChatGPT to compare, contrast, and make recommendations based on the established context. Quality and Limitations of

ChatGPT predicts Real Estate Prices !

Is it possible to predict real estate rental prices without writing a single line of code? I asked ChatGPT to generate a complete solution. And was stunnded by its answers... Artificial Intelligence has once again pushed the boundaries of what we thought was possible. The AI field has presented us with a stunning demonstration of its ability to not only assist in writing code, but to single-handedly create a complete, working Random Forest Regression solution. Yes, you read that right. ChatGPT, an AI model developed by OpenAI, is now proficient enough to autonomously develop a complex web application to predict real estate prices. And the most exciting part? You don’t need to write a single line of code! How Does it Work? In a fascinating experiment (below at the end of the post), ChatGPT was tasked with developing a complete web solution on PythonAnywhere. The brief was complex: create a webpage where users could upload a CSV file with geographical coordinates and real estate rental p
