While our understanding of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools—and how to integrate them in teaching—will continue to grow, the fundamental principles of effective assignment design remain intact. Peruse the resources below to learn how your course design can respond to the ubiquity of these technologies, including what policies to consider including in your syllabus.


These fundamental principles on teaching with AI can help guide your pedagogy and assignment design this fall:


Review or (re)design assignments to ensure you’re achieving your learning goals.


Be transparent with students about expectations surrounding AI tools, and whether or not they can be used in your class.


Explore types of AI tools, understand how students are using them, and connect with us for help as you need it.
