Key Components of the AI Educational Campaign
In addition to guidelines from the Provost Office, we are establishing comprehensive guidelines and policies for the responsible use of ChatGPT and other generative AI platforms. These guidelines will emphasize academic honesty and outline permissible activities.
To raise awareness among faculty members and students about the ethical considerations and risks associated with ChatGPT and other generative AI platforms, we will conduct workshops and training sessions. These efforts will ensure that all stakeholders have a deep understanding of the implications and proper usage of the technology.
Faculty members can play an active role in monitoring student interactions with ChatGPT and other generative AI platforms during assessments to identify potential instances of plagiarism or improper use. This monitoring will help preserve the authenticity of students' work.
We will help faculty who want to explore alternative assessments that can reduce students' reliance on ChatGPT and other generative AI platforms while providing a comprehensive evaluation of students' skills and capabilities. These assessments might include in-person exams, practical (hands-on) assignments, group projects, and oral presentations.
Faculty members can continue to provide one-on-one consultations and personalized guidance, emphasizing the value of human interaction and expertise. This support will remain crucial in nurturing student learning and development.
Regular evaluation and feedback from faculty members and students will be sought to refine our guidelines and approaches. This iterative process will enable us to adapt and improve our strategies over time.
