LEAF program

The Learning & Education Advancement Fund (LEAF) program, funded by the Vice-Provost, Innovations in Undergraduate Education (OVPIUE), has supported projects that utilize GenAI in teaching and learning.

The ways in which we teach and learn will be impacted by this emergent technology. To explore the potential impacts, opportunities, and challenges of GenAI in a pedagogical context, a cross-disciplinary network of research teams supported by the LEAF program collaborated to develop projects that applyGenAI. Some highlights of this program are listed below.
