Suggested Course Syllabus Statements
One of the goals of the campus taskforce on the emergence of AI tools in higher education was to develop suggested syllabi language for faculty use. Suggested statements are now available. There are three types of recommend statements: 1) open use, 2) moderate use, and 3) strict use. Faculty are invited to use the suggested statement that best fits their courses.
This document presents some general principles that can be used to address the influence of new technologies like ChatGPT as they enter our teaching, learning, and research environment. It is a foundation for discussion and policy development as the UT community works with emerging technology, such as AI, within the paradigms and practices of their disciplines. This document was created by the ChatGPT Philosophy Committee, comprised of members representing a variety of disciplines and these diverse perspectives informed its development.

For the second session of this semester’s three-part event series supporting AI use in the classroom, Chris Lavan, associate vice provost for faculty affairs and executive director of Teaching and Learning Innovation (TLI), and Deepa Deshpande, faculty consultant for curriculum development in TLI, co-hosted a discussion using Beckie Supiano’s article, “Will ChatGPT Change How Professors Assess Learning?” from The Chronicle of Higher Education. The conversation was rich and robust as attendees engaged in both group discussion and breakout groups using Jamboards to think through the implications of AI on assessment and share effective strategies for measuring student learning.
