How do I use ChatGPT productively?

Before using ChatGPT or other generative AI tools for your assignments, please ensure your professor has approved their usage for the following productive ChatGPT tasks:

  • Initial brainstorming and outlining
  • Summarizing meeting notes
  • Language translations, definitions, and clarifying academic or complex terminology 
  • Tutoring or synthesizing information
  • Career advice

Please note: 

  • AI tools can produce incorrect or biased information (hallucinations). While some of the newer generative AI tools (GPT 4o, Gemini AI) have the ability to search the web for answers, older and free versions of these tools may not be trained on the most current information. 
  • Always verify the facts and data provided by AI using reliable sources.
  • Be cautious when sharing personal or sensitive information while interacting with AI tools.
  • You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy and integrity of your work. Be transparent about your AI usage on assignments (Citing ChatGPT).
  • If you have questions about the appropriate use of AI tools or need assistance, please reach out to the instructor and course syllabus for guidance.
