We aim to keep this guide up to date. But since new developments are happening so quickly, it's possible this may be out of date when you read it.


This guide serves as a starting point for thinking about using generative AI tools in your teaching.  It provides resources for learning more about generative AI, how to think about how generative AI impacts pedagogy, information about AI detection, AI fact-checking and copyright.  It also includes resources on how to cite generative AI and how to use generative AI like ChatGPT effectively.
