Here you can discuss the ways in you would like students to use AI as a primary tool throughout the learning and assessment process, for example to demonstrate their ability to use AI tools effectively and critically to tackle complex problems, make informed judgments, and generate creative solutions. You can explain how the assessment provides an opportunity to demonstrate effective and responsible use of AI. You should support and guide the students in the use of AI to ensure equity of experience.
• drafting and structuring content;
• generating ideas;
• comparing content (AI generated and human generated);
• creating content in particular styles;
• producing summaries;
• analysing content;
• reframing content;
• researching and seeking answers;
• creating artwork (images, audio and videos);
• playing a Socrative role and engaging in a conversational discussion;
• developing code;
• translating content;
• generating initial content to be critiqued by students
In indicating on a syllabus and/or assignment instructions that students may use generative AI, the instructor should decide to what degree and on which assignments the students may use these tools. This is similar to indicating to students when they may collaborate, and to what degree, with their classmates, and when an assignment should be solely their own work.
Here are some suggested example statements that might be used, combined, or adapted for your course or assignments:
- Students are encouraged to make use of technology, including Generative Artificial Intelligence tools, to contribute to their understanding of course materials.
- Students may use Artificial Intelligence tools, including Generative AI, in this course as learning aids or to help produce assignments. However, students are ultimately accountable for the work they submit.
- Students must submit, as an appendix with their assignments, any content produced by an Artificial Intelligence tool, and the prompt used to generate the content.
- Any content produced by an Artificial Intelligence tool must be cited appropriately. LSE’s library provides guidance on the four main citation styles used at LSE: a) APA, b) Chicago, c) Harvard, and d) OSCOLA and recommends students use Cite Them Right,
- Students may choose to use Generative AI tools as they work through the assignments in this course; this use must be documented in an appendix for each assignment. The documentation should include what tool(s) were used, how they were used, and how the results from the AI were incorporated into the submitted work.
- Course instructors reserve the right to ask students to explain their process for creating their assignment.
Note that some Generative AI applications may require a subscription fee. Please consider offering students a choice to opt-out of using a system if they have concerns about the cost, privacy, security or other issues related to the technology.
