The instructional design guide (MITRE-GenAI-Instructional Design Guide-2019.pdf) provides the instructional design template for GenAI.

The lesson plan (MITRE-GenAI-lessonplan-SYST530-2019.pdf) contains an overview of the dataset, how to access the notebook, how to get started in Jupyter Notebooks, and walks through the data and questions the students should answer.

If you would like to see the static version of the notebook for a quick view please use this URL:
