  6. 6. Background Findings from our participatory action research project Reflections IDL is not an expression widely known by students. “Familiarising students with ‘information and digital literacy’ as a term that means something”
  7. 7. Background Findings from our participatory action research project Reflections Consistency in reading list provision will improve the student experience. “Tutors also provide very good information, but in inconsistent ways on the VLE that often do not utilise useful features such as the University’s Resource (Reading) Lists system. Consistency within a programme on core information can reduce students' time and confusion when navigating their Blackboard courses.” – Digital Learning Advisor “Each module creating module resource (reading) lists should make Library content quickly available. Linking e-textbooks directly from Blackboard will save everyone time in accessing textbooks and encouraging reading.” – Library Student Associate
