To: All Doshisha Students

[Important Notice]


The Use of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI)
in Essay and Report Examinations

 The use of GAI (ChatGPT, Bard, BingAI, etc.) could result in missed opportunities for you to acquire the skills that should be learned during your studies at Doshisha University.
 When writing essays and reports, it is essential that you develop the ability to independently research, select, and discard information.
 Submitting AI-generated texts as essays or reports that have been created by yourself makes it difficult to correctly evaluate and measure learning outcomes, preventing fair grade evaluation. It may also lead to legal problems such as unintentional infringement of a third party's copyright.
Therefore, in all essay and report examinations at Doshisha University we prohibit you from submitting work generated by GAI as your own. If you violate this rule, it will be considered an act of cheating and dealt with strictly.
 Please follow the directions of the instructor in charge of your class (es) regarding the use of GAI in class assignments, etc. (See also, “The Use of Generative Artificial Intelligence (ChatGPT, Bard, BingAI etc.) in Learning”.)

5.Response to COVID-19

Determination on School Attendance
Until Sunday, May 7, 2023, follow the flowchart of whether you are allowed to come to the campus. In case of attendance suspension, contact the university immediately in the manner indicated in the flowchart.
From Monday, May 8, 2023, the university will provide reasonable accommodations for students absent from classes or examinations due to COVID-19, as well as those with influenza (excluding avian influenza and pandemic influenza), so that they will not suffer disadvantage, as long as they have completed the designated procedure. Details of the procedure will be provided in the Consideration regarding Infectious diseases section at a later date.
*
In AY2022, we provided the following three types of students with reasonable accommodations for ensuring sufficient learning and taking examinations, but we will not do so in AY2023. If you need reasonable accommodations for your study, contact the Division of Student Diversity and Accessibility Support.
  • Students at high risk of serious complications due to an underlying condition or chronic illness, if infected with COVID-19
  • Students living together with family members at high risk of serious complications due to an underlying condition or chronic illness, if infected with COVID-19
  • Students who cannot enter Japan due to immigration restrictions

Infection Control Measures in Class
As an infection control measure, we set the capacity for each classroom at approximately 80% of its seating capacity. We will endeavor to ensure ventilation at the appropriate timing by installing a carbon dioxide meter in each classroom, opening classroom doors and windows, and operating ventilation equipment.
*
Wear a mask if necessary at your own discretion not only against COVID-19, but also against hay fever, colds, etc. You may be required to wear a mask during, for example, a class which involves speaking in a situation where social distancing cannot be ensured.
*
We will ensure that hand sanitizers remain available, for example, in the corridors in front of classrooms, so follow proper hand hygiene by using such sanitizers, washing your hands, or taking other appropriate measures.
*
If you are engaged in an off-campus activity as part of a regular curriculum, such as practical training, field work, or a seminar training camp, please observe the infection control manual or other guidelines set by the facility for that activity. If you travel to the facility by means of public transportation, act appropriately depending on the situation, such as wearing a mask in a crowded train.

6.Wi-Fi Study Rooms for Students

At the university, there are study rooms where Wi-Fi is available so that you can take online classes (e-learning) on campus in your spare time. (Existing classrooms are used for this purpose.) However, since each study room has only a limited number of seats, we cannot guarantee sufficient space for interactive (real-time) online classes to be provided in the designated time slots in accordance with the timetable. For the classrooms to be used as study rooms in the spring 2023 semester, check Announcements from University on DUET or the link below.

7.Announcements from University

The university will make announcements basically through Announcements from University on DUET, the Doshisha University Web Portal, or the websites of the university, your faculty/school/graduate school. Remember to check back frequently.

Depending on the spread of COVID-19 in the future, there might be a full switch to online classes (e-learning) even in the middle of the semester, in some cases, such as if the national government or Kyoto Prefecture take measures to strengthen their COVID-19 prevention measures.

Note: For classes provided by the Law School and the Graduate School of Business, separate notices will be released by the Law School Office and the Office of Graduate School of Business, respectively.
