As many of you will be aware online reading lists are a fantastic way to present course materials to your students in order to better, and more fully, engage them. Feedback from students has been very positive!
There are benefits for you, too:
- Update readings and publish immediately
- Flexible layout makes them suitable for a few essential readings, or fuller lists.
- Ideal for a variety of resources, such as film or TV clips (e.g. using YouTube or Box of Broadcasts), online training tutorials with Lynda.com, professional body webpages, image database resources etc.
Ahead of session start, TLSS* are happy to help by setting up reading lists for new courses. You can then take ownership and share editing rights with your colleagues. We will also show new colleagues how to use these lists. For those of you who may like a quick reminder, would like some tips, or have questions, we are also continuing our summer refresher sessions.
We have been holding drop-in sessions in the TLSS office every Wednesday afternoon, 2.30-4.30 p.m, and will continue throughout October. Visit us in UCL Senate House, 3rd floor, room 317 in the staff area (ask at the UCL reception desk). See our poster for more details.
In addition we welcome the opportunity to visit departments for ‘Getting started’ sessions or one to one trouble-shooting; email us for further information, set up a reading list, or to book a visit!
