MLA Provides Guidance for Citing AI-generated Content
In the latest episode of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions Rushton Hurley and I discussed some guidelines for student use of ChatGPT. Less than an hour after that I came across, via LinkedIn, the MLA’s new guide to citing generative AI.
The new MLA guide to citing content created by generative AI tools like ChatGPT includes a guide, template, and examples for students to follow.
The key take-aways from the guide are:
- Don’t treat the AI tool as an author.
- Cite the AI tool whenever you incorporate content created by it into your own work.
- Acknowledge all functional uses of the AI tool.
- Vet the sources the AI tool cites.
The MLA’s guide to citing content created by generative AI includes examples for visual work like drawings and text created by AI.
