DWHP 3200 - Fall 2024: Using AI Tools

UIW's Academic Integrity Policy

Avoiding Plagiarism

Plagiarism is defined by the University of the Incarnate Word as the "appropriation of another’s work and the unacknowledged incorporation of that work in one’s own written work offered for credit." This applies to using another human's work or anything created by generative AI (GenAI) tools like ChatGPT and Perplexity.

Use GenAL tools with caution. They are not always right. They are not a substitute for your critical thinking skills.

In the chart below, note the different levels of appropriate use of GenAI tools. Be sure to find out if your instructor authorizes you to use GenAI in your class assignments, to what extent you can use it, and if you need to disclose that in the finished product.


A guide for students: should I use AI. why do you want to use an AI tool.
