Using Generative AI

Using Generative AI

Generative AI tools, (such as Chat GPT, Scribe, GPT-4, etc.) have the potential to be a valuable enhancement to your learning experience. However, use of these tools must follow your instructor’s AI policy. Your instructor may allow you to use these tools for help in understanding course concepts, working through practice problems, brainstorming, etc. but it is not allowed to use these tools as a substitute for work that will be submitted for a grade. 

Because allowances for using generative AI will vary across courses and across assignments, students must read the expectations for each course carefully. Students should disclose to faculty and tutors if they are using generative AI platforms and in what manner they are using them in coursework.

If instructors allow generative AI, students must cite when, where, and how it is used to the faculty and tutor. Students should share the written policy with the tutor before a session to ensure that the tutor understands the assignment and resources you are able to use. When using generative AI, citations must include the platform and how the information is being used.  Failure to disclose and cite AI-generated work to faculty may be a violation of the Academic code.
