Resources for Faculty or Staff 

Generative Artificial Intelligence:

Vice-Provost Susan McCahan gives a talk on Generative Artificial Intelligence including ChatGPT

Generative AI Explainer Resource by Vice-Provost Susan McCahan

For the University’s latest guidelines on generative AI and examples of appropriate syllabus language around the use of generative AI in assignments that you might wish to include in course syllabi, visit https://www.viceprovostundergrad.utoronto.ca/strategic-priorities/digital-learning/special-initiative-artificial-intelligence/.

Offering clear direction to students on the permissibility or prohibition in the use of generative AI tools will prevent misunderstandings and avoid the need for students and instructors to navigate through the academic integrity process. 

For more information on best practices in course design and for assistance in designing assessments that are less susceptible to the use of generative AI tools, please consult with the Centre for Teaching & Learning at U of T Scarborough or consult the resource material from the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation online: https://teaching.utoronto.ca/resources/generative-artificial-intelligence-in-the-classroom/.
