NSF AI Institute for Student-AI Teaming seeking study participants

We are recruiting participants for a research study who are native English speakers, are over the age of 18, and who are students, staff or faculty at CU Boulder. 

These studies take place at the Center for Innovation and Technology, Room 184G. In this type of study we investigate collaborative problem solving in science, technology, engineering and mathematics domains. In the study you will be working with other participants on a series of group problem solving tasks.

During the study we’ll be using cameras and microphones to record the interactions you and your group have with one another and with the tasks at hand. We’ll also use eye tracking to measure your gaze patterns during the experiment. Collecting video and audio data of you and your group’s interactions is mandatory for this study. If you do not want to be recorded with video and microphone, you may decide not to participate in this study at any time.  

These studies last 2.5 hours each, and the pay is $15 per hour ($37.50 total). You cannot earn course credit through this study.

Schedule an appointment online. To get directions to our lab, or for more information, please email isat.aicl@gmail.com.

Course alert submissions requested by Oct. 11

Course alerts are an important component in ensuring undergraduate student success. The process aligns with the university's strategic priority of creating a common student-centered approach to teaching and learning and aims to improve retention and graduation rates for students. If students are alerted early in the semester, they have the time to take action, whether this means seeking additional instructor help or guidance, engaging a tutor or modifying their schedule accordingly.

“We strongly recommend that instructors submit their alerts as early as possible, and well before the drop deadline for the term, to help students improve their academic performance in the class,” said Myers. “Instructors can submit their alerts more than once a term, but only once per student.”
The recommended deadlines for Boulder 16-week courses is Monday, October 11.
