Generative Artificial Intelligence and the Literature Review: A Workshop for Graduate Students

Wednesday, June 5, 2024 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

The literature review can be a challenging and time-consuming component of a research project. Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) can’t write your literature review for you, but this workshop will explore and introduce GenAI tools you may use as supports in the literature review process. We will identify ethical, legal, and intellectual property pitfalls associated with GenAI use, and offer guidelines and strategies for productive, ethical, and appropriate use of specific GenAI tools for specific purposes at each stage of the research and writing process.

This interactive workshop is a collaboration between the Library and the Writing and Communication Centre is designed for graduate students who are working on a literature review as part of a project proposal, thesis or dissertation, or a standalone journal article. Bring your laptop with you to get the most out of the hands-on practice session during this workshop.
