Questions about the use of Generative AI in courses?

Connect with Kaylen Cons, Senior Director of Student Academic Affairs and The College's Academic Integrity Officer, for questions about potential academic integrity violations concerning Artificial Intelligence. 

Connect with your Instructional Designer or Kena Ray for course design best practices in the age of Artificial Intelligence.

The use of Artificial Intelligence in courses

The College Dean's Office encourages academic units and faculty to determine whether student use of generative AI/ChatGPT in their courses is permitted or prohibited and to state this and any parameters in your syllabi, announcements, and assignment instructions. See these resources for recommendations: 

Additionally, faculty should include the ASU Academic Integrity policy in their syllabi, including copyright and plagiarism verbiage. The use of Generative AI/ChatGPT falls within ASU's Academic Integrity policies and processes. 

Within their courses and assignments, faculty should emphasize that students must cite any borrowed content sources to comply with all applicable citation guidelines and copyright law and avoid plagiarism. Simply put, if students use generative AI, they should cite it: How to Cite ChatGPT (APA website)ASU Library Guide on Citing Generative AI Models 

Students and faculty should also ensure any AI-generated citations are correct, as generative AI tools are notorious for listing nonsensical citations.

AI Detection software

ASU administration has not recommended any specific tools or apps to detect the use of AI in coursework. The accuracy of AI detection tools is not reliable; any results from these tools should be used for nothing more than a starting point for a conversation between faculty and the student whose work is in question. Suspected use of Generative AI in coursework is not sufficient evidence to begin a formal Academic Integrity investigation. Instead, we recommend faculty document their expectations early and often, and have open dialogs with students about the implications and responsible use of Generative AI in coursework and academia.
