ChatGPT raises concerns for faculty writing: Opinion


Since ChatGPT’s release in late November, academics and students alike have wondered how it might affect postsecondary teaching and learning. However, less attention has been devoted toward what this software means for academics, writes Ben Chrisinger for the Chronicle of Higher Ed. While AI can provide useful assistance when used to support academic writing, Chrisinger argues that without the proper transparency mechanisms, it can also exacerbate existing inequalities in research. “For this system of trust to hold in academe, we must firmly and rapidly commit to transparency around the use AI,” concludes Chrisinger. “Only then can we hope to have informed and reasoned discussions about what norms and rules should govern academic writing in the future.”
