These tools, these Large Language Models, offer present promise and peril -- disruption -- to ways of working and of learning. Outside the "hype," these tools are "calculators for words" and allow the same manipulation and reflection of a user's words as a calculator offers for a user's numbers.
The workshop will guide users into using various free and paid tools, and the effective use of Large Language Models through chain of thought prompting.
Remember: a LLM is "Always confident and usually correct."
