The article at this link motivated me to share these thoughts:
ChatGPT is here. It is real. Students will know about it. As educators, we can't hide from this, and sadly, plagiarism checkers will not help us find content submitted by students that was written by ChatGPT.
I believe we need to focus on three areas this coming semester:
1. Helping the student to understand the roles that AI and chatbots will play in their lives and careers. There is more to chatbots than cheating. These tools will be important to organizations. We can help the students discover where the tools can be beneficial.
2. Exploring with the students how the chatbots like ChatGPT can help them. There are faults, such as lack of reference citations, and the chatbots can be wrong. Students can learn how to use chatbot content as thought-provocation, or to help them determine if they are missing something in the essays. We can teach them how to literally fact-check the chatbots.
3. Developing assessment methods to ensure that the students are learning and applying what they are learning, rather than the students submitting material written by a chatbot.
This shoud be a fascinating semester.
