Our staff from Information Services have won an award for their inventive work improving reading lists.
The Reading List team won a Talis Aspire User Group Creativity Award 2017 for two pieces of work:
Making reading lists more accessible
The team worked with staff in Student Support and Wellbeing to improve the way students with individual learning plans (ILPs) access their resources through the Reading List service. Since September 2016, we have texts in accessible formats for 63 reading lists.
This was part of the OPERA accessibility project.
Better reading lists make better modules
The team engaged with our academic community, using data to show a correlation between reading list availability and student Module Evaluation scores.
