Faculty confront AI misuse amid reported rise in cheating
GW Hatchet, December 4, 2023
Alexa Alice Joubin, a professor of English and a Columbian College of Arts & Sciences Faculty Administrative Fellow working on a project about AI in higher education, said she helps faculty struggling to identify cheating with AI tools by developing assignments that aren’t compatible with the technology and sharing ways to use the technology positively.
Joubin said faculty are “incredibly frustrated” because the online AI detection tools designed to help instructors check for AI-generated work can’t reliably catch instances of the academic dishonesty. She said academic integrity cases related to AI don’t often escalate because suspecting faculty lack “hard evidence.”
