Reading (or resource) lists are key learning and teaching tools. An accurate, stimulating and well-organised list can enhance the student's experience of a course of study, providing valuable guidance based upon the lecturer's knowledge of the subject area and facilitating independent learning.
ReadingLists@Dundee uses software which enables a lecturer to gather together information on a wide variety of resources including books, chapters within books, articles from journals, videos and webpages, and to present this in a list. The lecturer can organise the list to reflect the way the module will be taught (e.g. week by week or by topic), can indicate the relative importance of individual items (e.g. essential or recommended), and provide annotations to guide the student. Thus a resource list is transformed into much more than a static list of resources.
ReadingLists@Dundee fully integrates with My Dundee, the University's virtual learning environment.
The service is underpinned by the University's Policy and Guidance on Reading and Resource Lists.
