While machine learning tools that “train” data in order to optimize prediction have been in the background of our lives for many years now, the November 2022 release of one particular large language model, OpenAI's ChatGPT has now become a subject of research, discussion and controversy for educators everywhere. Chatbots of this kind work through statistical modeling of data that has been “scraped” from the Internet (usually without consent). As a result of this vast access to data and a great deal of human reinforcement, chatbots and other LLMs respond to prompts with human-like outputs that can be detailed and articulate--though which may be superficial, inaccurate, biased, or “confabulated.” Students, staff, and faculty alike are naturally keen to educate themselves about these new technologies: a process of shared learning that we think of in terms of critical AI literacy. Are chatbots useful for administrative tasks, teaching, or research? Or do their problems and known harms outweigh their benefits.

We at OTEAR have been following these discussions carefully and staying up-to-the-minute even as we recognize the need to provide timely advice, useful information, and a few best practices for the consideration of our instructors, students, and colleagues. The resources provided by our AI Roundtable Council, “TEACHING CRITICAL AI LITERACY: Advice for the New Semester,” will walk you through a brief history of AI, a discussion of critical AI literacy (which includes detailed information about the technology's harms and limitations), advice on academic integrity, a sample of statements for your syllabi, and a list of resources. Several members of the council have also agreed to answer any follow-up questions that you have.

AI Roundtable

Announcing the AI Roundtable, a space for the Rutgers community to come together to learn about and discuss issues related to AI in Higher Education. Events held in this space will include discussions about AI and pedagogy, academic integrity and generative language models, and professional use of AI as part of academic and administrative work.

Frequently Asked Questions

ChatGPT (Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer) and similar large language models Google's Bard, and Anthropic's Claude, are software applications designed to respond in text to text-based questions. Natural language processing tools model human-like conversations. Large language models are described as powerful, and remember previous prompts so engaging with one emulates the give and take of human interactions. ChatGPT and others can answer questions and assist in writing tasks (see Vanderbilt email) such as emails, essays, reports, poetry, plays, and computer code. There are many potential applications for these tools.

Take a look at OpenAI's latest update: GPT-4

Generative AI is prone to “hallucinations” where it “...writes plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers.” When asked to cite sources, AI tools, such as ChatGPT, frequently fabricate information and invent references that may appear legitimate, but are entirely fictitious. While these tools can be used to mimic many different writing styles, a great deal of initial guidance and proofreading is required before we should have confidence in the output.

There are many and various resources available to students to support their study, from calculators to a collection of AI tools. Faculty are encouraged to consider what their policies for dealing with these extraneous tools and provide clear instructions about which tools and resources can be used, how to cite and acknowledge them, discuss them in class and point out the policies on the syllabus, and remind students regularly of Rutgers Academic Integrity policy.

Develop clear policies for each course. For example:

  • “Use of AI such as ChatGPT is not permitted in any stages of the writing process on any assignment.”

  • “Use of AI such as ChatGPT is only permitted to help you brainstorm ideas and see examples. All material you submit must be your own.”

  • “Use of AI such as ChatGPT is fully permitted, but you must cite the tool and be able to explain any work that you submit.”

  • For more ideas about updating your syllabus in regards to ChatGPT, see this list of tips and suggestions.

    The Sentient Syllabus Project also offers more syllabus resources for Higher Education in the era of generative AI.

    There are multiple different tools being developed to detect the use of AI generated content. OpenAI is also working on creating a “digital watermark” for all text created with ChatGPT. Some current detectors available are:

  • GPTZero
  • Turnitin

  • However, it is unknown whether these tools can be effectively used for reviewing student work and enforcing academic integrity standards. As AI tools are constantly evolving, detection software may be less effective in the future. Here are some articles that further discuss these detectors, other tools, and their implications:

  • Can ChatGPT fool a high school teacher? We put one to the testNBC
  • How to Prevent ChatGPT CheatingTech & Learning
  • How to Escape the ChatGPT WatermarkMatt Popovic in ECO-AGI
  • One strategy that can be used to discourage use of AI and promote learning is to require students to show stages of their work, e.g. outlines, rough drafts, selected references, contributions by different group members. Major assignments can be designed to be submitted in a sequence of steps, which is known as “scaffolding.”

    Projects or assignments that require students to produce a specific application with personal insights so that they “explain” their learning through the product or project. Use rubrics that score critical thinking, problem-solving and application of knowledge over summary and review.

    Another strategy is that students can be required to add personal comments such as reflections on the value of the assignment in their education, what was challenging, surprising, or what they would do differently once the project was completed.

    Instructors can also ask that students cite class readings or discussion, or require that they use recent scholarship which may not be available in AI databases. Or, students may be asked to collect data on their own and use it as part of their analysis.

    Research papers that require citations of specific evidence and quotations that then are used in the analysis of the research problem or premise. These could be from course materials or literature searches that include the search output.

    The research project findings that might have been presented in text might be shared in a multimedia presentation, blog or podcast, webpage or e-portfolio, or graphically in an infographic or content map.

    AI can be used in a variety of ways in college courses: practice language skills when learning another language; use to organize ideas in a first draft; finding and organizing information in research papers; generate opposing arguments for discussions; create questions for content knowledge self-assessments; use as personalized tutor for improving learning. Many colleges are incorporating AI applications to communicate with students.

    Take a look at how ChatGPT answered the question:
    Prompt: How can ChatGPT be used in college courses?

    ChatGPT can be used in a variety of ways in college classrooms, some examples include:

  • 1. Language Learning: ChatGPT can be used to help students practice their language skills through conversational interactions. The model can generate responses in the target language and can also be used to evaluate student's responses for grammar and fluency.
  • 2. Essay Writing Assistance: ChatGPT can be used to help students generate ideas for writing assignments and to provide feedback on their writing.
  • 3. Research Assistance: ChatGPT can be used to assist students in finding and organizing information for research projects. It can be used to generate summaries of articles, provide relevant citations, and can even be used to help generate research questions.
  • 4. Group Discussion and Debate: ChatGPT can be used to generate discussion points and counterpoints for class debates and discussions.
  • 5. Assessment: ChatGPT can be used to create multiple choice question for assessments and quizzes, which can help in reducing human effort and increase efficiency.
  • 6. Personalized Tutoring: ChatGPT can be used to provide personalized tutoring to students, by answering questions and providing feedback on their work.

  • These are just a few examples of how ChatGPT can be used in college classrooms. As a powerful language model, ChatGPT has many potential applications, and the possibilities are limited only by the creativity and imagination of the users.

    The great success of ChatGPT has created a surge for other AI tools. Here is a list of some other AI applications available:

    AI in the Classroom: Opportunities and Challenges

    Lumen Circles, February 22, 2023
    Derek Synder and Michael Babcock
    Recording available via Zoom, Dereck Snyder's slides from session, and Michael Babcock's slides from session.

    The release of ChatGPT late last year was immediately hailed as a game-changer in the application of artificial intelligence to writing tasks. Some academics have gone so far as to declare, somewhat apocalyptically, that “the college essay is dead.” This webinar takes a “technology-positive” approach to the challenges posed by A.I. to both humanities and STEM disciplines. The focus will be on specific, practical ways to use active learning techniques and process-based assessment to counteract the potential for cheating, while demonstrating how A.I. can function as a supportive technology in both the classroom and workplace.

    AI and the Academy: The End of the Essay?

    Acadia Univresity, McGill University, January 31, 2023
    Daniel Lametti - Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology
    Recording available on Youtube, Dr. Lametti's slides from session.

    In this talk, I’ll review the strengths and weaknesses of large language models like ChatGPT to demonstrate that they do a poor job of completing most university assignments without a knowledgeable human hand to guide them. I’ll argue that these models are not a threat to higher education but a useful pedagogical tool that can help students learn how to write better papers, and facilitate more meaningful real-world interactions between students and professors. Finally, I’ll explore how universities might use AI to improve the experience of students in and outside of the classroom. In the future, language will be the mechanism by which humans interact with computers. Universities should prepare students for this change.

    Video recording available on the OTEAR Learning and Teaching Canvas site.

    How should we respond to the emergence of AI platforms that allow students with an internet connection to automatically craft competent responses to a variety of prompts typically used in essays, homework assignments, reflection prompts, or exams? Should we avoid any mention of these tools in our classes, teach students how to use them responsibly, or ban their use outright? Is take-home work even valuable anymore? What implications does this have for grading and plagiarism? You have questions and we do too. In this discussion we explored what this new technology does and provided a space to voice concerns and solutions.
