CELT AI Resources
Where to Begin with AI and Teaching?
Below are some suggested steps for exploring GenAI tools and reflecting on how to approach them in your courses. Use the linked resources to complete these steps.
- Read our Intro to AI & Teaching to get a sense of what GenAI is and how it works.
- Explore some examples of GenAI and experiment with them.
- Read some example course AI policies and adapt on for your syllabus.
- If those examples don't work for you, design your own policy using this guide.
As always, CELT is available for one-on-one and group consultations to discuss these ideas further. Contact us here to schedule a consult.
Step 1 - Read the Introduction to AI in Teaching
Start by reading CELT's brief interactive introduction to GenAI including some important takeaways about how to approach GenAI and AI detectors as an instructor. This page also includes some interactive activities to help you learn more about GenAI.

Step 2 - Explore GenAI Examples
While ChatGPT is perhaps the most well-known text-based GenAI tool, there are many others available for use (and the numbers continue to grow). Read about some of the more notable text-based AI tools and how they differ. Spend some time experimenting with them.
Step 3 - Read AI Course Policy Examples
It is up to the instructor to decide whether student use of generative AI (GenAI) is appropriate for their courses. Regardless of whether AI use is allowed, every class syllabus should include a clear policy on AI. See some examples you can adapt here.
Step 4 - Build Your Own AI Course Policy
For instructors who prefer to design their own AI course policy, see our guide that walks you though that process. The guide offers specific questions instructors should consider.
CELT AI Events
CELT is offering a number of events designed to help instructors explore and experiment with GenAI as it relates to teaching and learning. View our scheduled events and register for those that interest you.
The transdisciplinary UK ADVANCE Team exists to define and develop recommendations for responsible use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) at the University of Kentucky. The team will provide ongoing guidance to the campus community to achieve the university’s mission for education, research, clinical care and service. See their website and guidelines here.
Instructors will want to stay informed on the University's required language regarding GenAI. The University Senate provides recommendations — including sample language for a course syllabus — on how to manage AI/ML in the classroom.
