Recording of Panel Discussion Artificial Intelligence and Academic Integrity
Panelists: Kate Chaterdon, Brian Gormanly, Julin Sharp, and the Office of Student Conduct
August 22 from 11:00-1:30
Cabaret, Student Center
Abstract: This institute will explore the benefits and risks presented by generative artificial intelligence, and the development of strategies for creating assignments and activities with this powerful tool in mind. The first part of the institute aims to build knowledge about the scope and limits of generative artificial intelligence, discuss artificial intelligence literacy and learning technologies, and provide an overview of the landscape of Marist’s academic integrity policies. The second part is dedicated to discussing the challenges and opportunities posed by generative artificial intelligence for how instructors assign and assess writing. Participants will be presented with tips and advice for incorporating more process-based, as opposed to product-based, writing assignments in their classes, in an effort to engage students and deter plagiarism. Participants are encouraged to bring writing prompts and assignments to be workshopped. However, because there is no foolproof way to entirely prevent the use of generative AI in student writing, this workshop will also suggest ways that instructors can initiate fruitful conversations with students about the responsible use of AI in the writing process.
Recording of Panel Discussion: Artificial Intelligence and Its Impact on the Classroom
Panelisits: Kevin Gaugler, Brian Gormanly, Julin Sharp, and Kathleen Weisse
Moderators: Patrick O’Donnell and Victoria Ferrara
Abstract: This panel discussion will focus on the potential impact of recent developments in artificial intelligence on academic integrity. ChatGPT, for example, is a chatbot that interacts conversationally and provides detailed responses to prompts across many disciplines. The panel will examine the nature and scope of chatbots like ChatGPT and explore strategies for developing meaningful assessments with it in mind. The panel will also discuss the development of tools and resources for Marist faculty to navigate this recent development, and, even, to use it as an opportunity for our students to learn.
