 How do university faculty members perceive generative AI, including ChatGPT? We often hear voices saying, “We are not particularly worried, as it hasn't yet reached the stage where it can be effectively used for class reports.”
 However, in the society that university students will enter after graduation, generative AI is already being utilized in many fields. Even if there are some inaccurate aspects, shouldn't students learn the correct ways to interact with it while they're still in university? Furthermore, both the university faculty and staff cannot ignore the constantly evolving generative AI.
 Therefore, let's explore practical examples how educators are utilizing generative AI in educational and research activities. We cannot teach students what we ourselves do not know. Let's engage with examples of utilization, try using them ourselves, and identify their strengths and weaknesses.
 During each session, two individuals will introduce topics. Following each presenter’s 20-minute presentation, there will be a 20-minute discussion, including a Q&A session.

Dr. Keisuke Aoshima (Lecturer, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Hokkaido University)

 I mainly use Gemini and ChatGPT for English proofreading and data analysis. The purpose of English proofreading is to improve the quality of the English I write by checking that it is grammatically correct, that it uses appropriate words and expressions, and that the meaning is clearly understood without confusion. For data analysis, I use it as a tool to help when errors occur during analysis. This time I would like to discuss these two points, including some actual use cases.

Dr. Yuki Nakaya (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, Hokkaido University)

 I use ChatGPT-3.5 (Open AI), which is free to use, for the Intermediate English lecture I teach, as well as for mentoring students in my lab and for paraphrasing sentences when preparing various documents. This time I will give examples of using ChatGPT to list important words, explain grammar and proofread English sentences in English lectures. In this presentation, I will advocate for the use of various translation AIs and generative AIs. I will discuss my aims and thoughts on the use of such AIs, and the precautions I have actually taken in teaching students how to use them.
