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), professional body webpages, image database resources etc.
Over the summer the TLSS will be 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 be showing new colleagues how to use these lists. For those of you who may like a quick reminder, would like some tips, or have questions for us, we will also be running refresher sessions.
We will be holding drop-in sessions in the TLSS office (room 317) on the 3rd floor of Senate House every Wednesday afternoon, 2.30-4.30 p.m, throughout June-August. In addition we welcome the opportunity to visit departments for ‘Getting started’ sessions or one to one trouble-shooting. See our summer poster for more details, or email us for further information, or to book a session!
