To develop your module further, use our Advanced checklist:
Include a variety of resources. Chose from UCL's subscribed resources of broadcast TV, image databases, newspapers and more.
Future-proof your list by using Open Access or UCL-subscribed e-resources. These will have durable links whereas resources infringing copyright may be removed and are not a good example of academic practice for students
Add your own annotations to each reading using the ‘Student notes’ field. Giving context or guidance leads to more engagement from your student.
Liberated curriculum: include resources from a variety of voices, by using authors with backgrounds and viewpoints. Inclusive, diverse readings model good practice in research to students. For toolkits, case studies and suggested reading, see the Liberating the Curriculum page in this guide.
Connected Curriculum: use the reading list to encourage students into their own research. You could give students their own section of a reading list to add readings they have found when researching a particular topic.
Incorporate your reading list into class teaching to embed the importance of reading and research into student’s academic practice. For example, set questions or tasks which require use of your reading list to answer
Reading List Examples
Here we highlight some great examples of reading lists from a variety of disciplines that also follow some or all of the points in our essential checklist.
