Turning a reading list into a conversation

In small groups the attendees were asked to look at how they might design and annotate a reading list to engage students.

They were given 20 resources, which were classified by type, topic and whether they are an online resource. They were also given a number of blank sections to use to structure the list. Any other decisions about how important a item is and if extra notes might be needed to help the student use the resource effectively, were up to the group.

Over lunch the attendees were asked to vote on which list they thought was the most engaging, this was won by the grey team!


Alongside the lists the groups were also asked to write down key issues (both design and practical) that arose during the session.
