Using AI ethically

student studyingHow can you use AI ethically? Here are some recommendations:

  • Read the syllabus to see what your instructor's policy is regarding AI. Respect that policy.
  • Provide citations for the sources you use for your work. Working with sources is expected and required in research, and crediting your sources improves the value of your research and demonstrates your own trustworthiness as a researcher.
  • Do not represent work done by an AI tool as your own work. If you work with an AI tool, cite it. Here is information on how to cite AI using the MLA style and the APA style.
  • Check facts. Make sure to check whatever information you obtain with AI, as it can provide inaccurate information.
