Hi all! I was wondering if folks are adding any language to their syllabi in regards to the use of A.I. tools, such as ChatGPT. I think it can be a useful tool in some situations, but I'm wondering if anyone has been having these discussions and would be willing to share language around the ethical use of A.I. for completing assignments, etc. I would love to hear how others are addressing this for classes and/or field education! Thank you!
I would love to hear what folks are doing as well. Last semester, I experienced my first full ChatCPT generated paper from a student in the applied research course I teach. I know more are coming and have been pondering how to best address it. I've considered teaching about it from the ethical use stand point as well.
Our university is currently working on language for faculty to include in their syllabi. I took my best attempt at it as we were also having some issues with students using AI. Each faculty member can add their own language to their syllabi, but I added language regarding this in our gatekeeping and professional behavior contract. Students review and sign it at multiple points throughout their education with us (upon achieving BSW candidacy, at each internship placement - BSW and MSW, and upon admission into our MSW program). Our thought is if students can see the expectations often, throughout their time with us, we will be less likely to experience an issue (and if we do, it is less likely a mistake). The language we used is below:
Students are expected to submit original work in all courses. This includes following all College and University policies regarding plagiarism, academic honesty, and avoiding unauthorized collaboration. Further, students are not allowed to use Artificial Intelligence applications when submitting academic assignments.
Thanks all! I did see this NASW webinar pop up yesterday on A.I. Not sure it's syllabus-specific, but it might be informative!
