AI, such as ChatGPT, provides an opportunity to improve a syllabus - as well as making a syllabus easier to create. While there is usually some institutionally required wording on a syllabus there is also a lot of opportunity to create a syllabus how we want. Too often it is easier to simply reuse a syllabus with minor updates as necessary. The syllabus though is usually our first contact with students and we can make this first contact more effective via using AI. AI allows us to make edits in a way that is a lot easier than it was in the recent past.
Join Chana Etengoff, Ph.D., Chair of Adelphi University’s Academic Integrity Committee, as she delves into the academic integrity implications of advancing artificial intelligence systems, such as ChatGPT. This presentation will explore the major policy and ethics debates of using AI checkers as the primary method of identifying students’ original work. Further expanding the scope of the debate, the webinar will additionally focus on the importance of coupling AI detection efforts with campus integrity values, faculty judgment and contextual understanding, as well as scaffolded assignments and drafts.
