Encouraging Academic Integrity in the Era of AI √ §

Revisit best practices given the rise of generative AI tools



Date & Time

February 14, 2024, 12:00 pm1:00 pm


While fostering and maintaining academic integrity has always been an important goal of instruction at UMBC, advances in “the other AI” – artificial intelligence – has complicated this effort. Students are not always aware of what constitutes plagiarism where tools such as ChatGPT are concerned. Meanwhile, faculty often feel pressure to ensure that students meet course learning objectives and also help them learn how to use AI tools ethically and responsibly. The fact that effective tools to detect students’ usage of AI in completing assignments do not currently exist further complicates the academic integrity landscape. In this session we will revisit best practices in course, syllabus, and assignment design in light of the opportunities and temptations that generative AI tools present. Faculty will learn how to make their policies around AI use clear to students and will gain strategies for dissuading students from inappropriate use of these tools.
