Overview

Overview

  • Factors that deter faculty from buying into the “culture of AI” and its related procedures

  • Potential consequences of faculty “doing their own thing”

  • Ways to encourage faculty to buy into and promote a culture of AI that puts students first

    • Administrative ways

    • Principled ways

  • Conclusion: Putting students first does not have to mean letting them by


Factors keeping faculty from buying in

Factors Keeping Faculty From Buying-In

  • Time

  • Fear of ruining student’s career/future

  • Lack of knowledge of policy and procedures

  • Feeling of breach of trust

  • Feeling of violating their teaching mandate/vocation

  • Feeling of turning their students in/hypocritical

  • Resistance to what is perceived as a culture that puts rules, not students, first


Dangers of faculty not buying in

Dangers of Faculty Not Buying-In

  • Inconsistent Dealings with AI violations across institution

  • Undermining culture of AI and student buy-in

  • Undermining student’s rights

  • Making institution vulnerable to lawsuits


Administrative ways of encouraging faculty buy in

Administrative Ways of Encouraging Faculty Buy-In

  • Make procedure and resources intuitive, easy, quick (templates and flowcharts)

  • Educate faculty on curriculum development, classroom management, policy, procedures, statistics, and dispel myths

  • Put penalty decisions for first offenders in their hands and remind them that they are in control

  • Get provost or dean to stress importance of following policy procedures


Principled ways of encouraging faculty buy in

Principled Ways of Encouraging Faculty Buy-In

  • Stress potential consequences of “dealing with cheaters in their own way”

  • Stress their teaching mandate/vocation and the learning opportunity that AI violations provide

  • Remind faculty that half of AI violations are unintentional (lack of skill & knowledge)

  • Encourage faculty to treat AI violations as policy violations rather than ethical transgressions, when appropriate

  • Get faculty to reflect on the power of their language to encourage or stifle learning: “dishonesty,” “misconduct,” “penalty” should not be used lightly, for instance


Possible objection and response

Possible Objection and Response

  • Objection: “We are letting students by, when we focus on prevention and education over punishment.”

  • Response: 2-step approach (separate procedures for first and multiple violations) ensures:

    • Penalties for multiple cheaters are appropriate and consistent across the institution

    • Faculty has control over consequences for first (not “serious”) violations

    • Best of both worlds with a focus on student learning


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Being fair, consistent, sensitive to unintentional violations, and focusing on the learning experience, puts students first and does not have to mean being “soft” or letting students by
