Writing Effective Prompts for Generative AI (WEPGAI)


Course Overview

As generative AI becomes more common, the ability to interact with large language models is shifting from niche knowledge to a necessary skill across many different industries and roles. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of prompting large language models and exploring further techniques for improving the output from large language models. You will also explore similar concepts when working with multimodal models such as Gemini Vision Pro.


There are no prerequisites for this course. The workshop aims to provide both introductory and advanced insights into Gen AI, making it suitable for individuals with varying levels of AI expertise.

Course Objectives

  • Understand the basics of generative AI and how it compares to traditional AI.
  • Design effective prompts following general best practices.
  • Improve large language model outputs using easy-to-approach prompt engineering techniques.
  • Write effective prompts for interacting with multimodal models such as Gemini Vision Pro.
