Guidance for Generative AI

USF recognizes the increasing availability and impact of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools on teaching and learning. Generative AI technologies like ChatGPT and Microsoft Copilot offer new opportunities to foster creativity and engage students in critical thinking, writing, and analysis, cultivating the development of modern skills needed in today’s workforce. As Generative AI technologies rapidly evolve, it is crucial for faculty to be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to integrate this powerful technology into their teaching practices.

This webpage offers information tailored to faculty. Resources will be updated as tools and guidelines continue to evolve.

Ethical Generative AI Usage

Generative artificial intelligence (genAI) tools are rapidly transforming our teaching and learning, research, and business practices at USF. These tools will shift our approach to both regular tasks and how we address new challenges. With increasing availability of genAI tools, USF provides guidance and considerations for implementing use into various workflows.

Syllabus Recommendation

CITL has developed a set of recommendations to guide you through developing a course policy that meets your learning goals. These can be augmented to work in your specific context. CITL Generative AI Course Policy Recommendations

Citing Generative AI

If faculty and students use ChatGPT or other generative AI technology for writing, transparency is vital. The USF Libraries have developed essential resources for citation in writing, research and publications.

Public AI

Exercise caution on Public generative AI tools such as Claude and ChatGPT. Treat posting information the same way you would a public or social media site.
