One size fits all? or How many references are enough? Looking at Reading Lists in the wider context (Linda Jones, University of Portsmouth)
How can reading lists be tailored to cater for students at levels from Foundation to Doctorate? What specific advantages do they have for visually impaired/dyslexic students? How can we best cater for Distance Learners? How can we adapt reading lists for large cohorts? Does it always have to be reading?
At a point when our use of reading list software is becoming embedded should we start to look at how lists can be used to promote information literacy to both staff and students? How do we foster confidence in talking about reading lists to both staff and students across our whole staff. A brief presentation on the University of Portsmouth's experience will be supplemented with a workshop activity designed to stimulate consideration and discussion of reading lists as tools to address problems around accessibility and how reading lists relate to information literacy frameworks at a variety of levels and in a variety of subject areas.
