Since the start of the 2022-23 academic year, large language models (commonly referred to as chatbots, artificial intelligence or AI, ChatGPT, Bard, etc.) have been available to the public. These models produce responses to prompts, and the sophistication of these responses has led to pressure on educational models and institutions to respond.
The university is providing clarity on this issue while also allowing for variety of opinion and practice as colleges, departments and individual instructors see fit. An AI Resource page has been developed to provide guiding language and principles for the use of emerging technologies at Marquette.
Regardless of where an instructor falls in the spectrum of use and integration of large language models into their courses, it is strongly recommended that each instructor make clear both in the course syllabus and during class time what the specific expectations for that class are regarding these new technologies. A guide to syllabus language is available on the AI Resource Page.
