The James Webb Space Telescope has shattered the boundaries of space science. Scientists find themselves rewriting the books of our understanding, reevaluating assumptions, and revolutionizing practices. The landscape of space science has been forever transformed.
The arrival of A.I. and ChatGPT in Learning and Development (L&D) is like the James Webb Space Telescope. It is revolutionary. It is groundbreaking. It presents enormous opportunities to transform our ways of helping learners learn. A.I./ChatGPT forces us to rethink and redefine the way we train people. We can now truly expand our workers’ and learners’ capacities with personalization, self-mentoring, gaining insights from massive knowledge, making them problem solvers, learning to impact work, and many others.
As learning designers and L&D specialists, A.I./ChatGPT fundamentally changes how we do our work. We can now get A.I./ChatGPT to do much of the brute and rudimentary work and reduce the costs drastically, while we focus on improving productivity and quality design in helping our workers.
The challenge, however, is to find the proverbial “needle in the haystack.” Where do we start, what is our focus, and how do we create immediate results from our A.I./ChatGPT applications? How do we develop new skills and how do we discover new personal rewards and advancement? This is what the workshop is all about.
In the workshop, you will learn to:
- Dig deeper into how to effectively use A.I./ChatGPT to develop novel and transformative ways of training people
- Match your organization’s demands and learning objectives with the right solutions
- Expand learners’ capacities with personalization and self-mentoring

Challenge: Learners are now engaging in meaningful conversations with algorithmic text models. ChatGPT is smart, gracious, and even funny. But they don’t think. But remember, they don’t think. They are good at conversations and organizing knowledge. It is still in the learners' capacity to fully utilize ChatGPT, which is dependent on how they think through the work problem and objectives. Learners must then have to articulate this thinking into prompt questions so they can have effective conversations with ChatGPT.
Objectives: What is the A.I., ChatGPT, and Large Language Models (LLMs) algorithm that enables them to have conversations with people? What is Prompt Engineering and what is its role in the conversations? What can we leverage in the learning design method that is close to Prompt Engineering? How do you create and test prompt questions that meet the learning goals of your lessons and problem-solving?
Applications: Apply a decision tree map on how to create and test prompt questions. Investigate how to use different types of prompt questions to accelerate learning and problem-solving. Align prompt questions, conversations, and ChatGPT responses to meet your learning goals. Obtain the 250 ready-to-use prompt questions to solve learning by problem-solving.
Challenge: While many optimists believe that AI ChatGPT has the potential to bring positive impacts, it’s also crucial to acknowledge the risks and damages associated with this technology. Unreliable content, biased ideas, and copyright infringement are a few to mention. However, enterprise and organizational ChatGPT-aided learning programs can install guard rails to reduce the risk and damage.
Objectives: What sample rules and policies can you apply? How to check if learners’ scope of conversations with ChatGPT leads to meeting learning objectives? How to increase the reliability of the knowledge from ChatGPT? How to use ChatGPT narrative models of learning validation?
Applications: Check a list of strategies to limit liabilities posed by ChatGPT. Build an evaluation and validation process for learning when using ChatGPT. Use a formula to confine ChatGPT within your learning objectives. Add Responsible Design aligning ChatGPT knowledge with learning design, accuracy, and ethical standards.
Challenge: The good thing about ChatGPT is the aggressive innovation and reiteration by the large provider companies. Improvements come in daily. There is an abundance of novel solutions that we can test and experiment often and constantly. A.I./ChatGPT will be in all facets of business operations. So instead of change happening by trickles or gradual steps, we could see massive and immediate adoption.
Objectives: How do we reinvent, retire, replace, insert, attach, fulcrum, and pivot learning design using ChatGPT? How to determine what will replace or make room for in your learning design?
