Have you heard about Generative AI (e.g., ChatGPT) but are not sure how to interact with these tools? This session will provide an overview of "prompt engineering": the process of crafting and structuring text to effectively communicate with generative AI models. Core concepts and best practices of prompt engineering, as well as how you can use these tools in all aspects of your life will also be discussed.

Hands-on activities will be used to demonstrate various prompting techniques while exploring text generating AI tools like ChatGPT and Perplexity, as well as image generators such as DALL-E 3 image generator via Microsoft Copilot. You will learn how to optimize these tools in your school, work, and personal life.

Facilitators: Melissa Rivosecchi, Teaching & Research Librarian, Social Sciences, Concordia University Library; Megan Fitzgibbons, Instructional Services Coordinator, Concordia University Library
