If ChatGPT is Writing the Courses and the Assignments, Why Do We Need Faculty or Students? An Ethics Module on Academic Integrity and Generative AI in Higher Education


This presentation delves into the convergence of academic integrity and Generative AI (GenAI). It introduces a framework for a lesson dedicated to exploring the ethical dimensions of GenAI with undergraduates students. This lesson was piloted during the winter semester of 2023 and subsequently during the Spring intersession. It specifically targeted first-year undergraduates at a science and technology university in the MENA region, focusing on Open AI's ChatGPT. While originally designed for an ethics-oriented course, the lesson serves as an adaptable module applicable across diverse disciplines. The emergence of ChatGPT and GenAI has sparked concerns regarding their impact on academic integrity, challenging established norms and blurring the lines of authorship. Engaging students in this discourse promotes critical reflection and responsible use of these technologies. This approach not only equips students with the skills to navigate the ethical application of GenAI in their assignments, but also facilitates a constructive dialogue between students and faculty on formulating effective policies for GenAI integration.
