The Future of Writing: Creating the playbook for Human-AI Collaboration

Of all the tasks that have been disrupted by generative AI over the past two years, none has seen a bigger shift than writing. When ChatGPT first arrived in November 2022, writing was the quickest activity to undergo an evolving sea change. The spring semester is here, and Grammarly for Education is weighing what the future of writing means for students, faculty, and professionals. One thing is crystal clear: Writing already looks different than it did two years ago. The focus of this webinar is how those changes continue to evolve in the medium and long term. 


In this webinar, Grammarly joins a distinguished panel of experts from the University of Mississippi to discuss the future of writing, one in which humans and AI collaborate to create more effective, context-aware writing. This three-person discussion touches on the role that writing will and should play in both higher education and the workplace in the near future, as well as the necessary changes that faculty and students in higher education need to consider in order to adapt to that future.
