Navigating Generative AI: The Dos and Don’ts for Students

Hey there, future scholars! 📚

Generative AI, like ChatGPT, is a fantastic tool for students, but it comes with some important guidelines to ensure it’s a helpful study companion.
Here are the dos and don’ts you need to keep in mind:


  1. Research Assistance: Use AI to generate ideas, summaries, and suggestions for your research or assignments.
  2. Learning Aid: It’s great for clarifying complex topics and practicing essay writing.
  3. Time Management: Save time on routine tasks to focus on deeper learning.


  1. Plagiarize: Never copy-paste generated content. Always rephrase and give credit when using AI-generated text.
  2. Overreliance: Don’t let AI do all the work. Use it as a supplement, not a replacement for your own thinking.
  3. Verify Information: Always double-check facts and data produced by AI. AI can make mistakes, so trust but verify.

For more guidelines please refer to this site prepared by the University Library.

Remember, AI is a tool, not a magic wand. Use it wisely and responsibly, and it can be a valuable part of your educational journey. Happy studying! 📖✨
