How to get your reading list set up?




How to use MIE Reading List Software:


Best Practice

Organized Reading List:
Ensure your reading list is well-structured, either by weekly assignments or topics. This structure helps students find materials easily.

Use Annotations Effectively:
Employ annotations when necessary to highlight crucial sections or clarify page numbers. For instance, you can say, "Chapter 2 provides a comprehensive overview of this subject."

Set Clear Expectations:
Define the importance of resources by categorizing them as Essential, Supplementary, or Recommended. This helps students prioritize their study.

Manage Resource Quantity:
Be mindful of the number of resources you include; excessively long lists can overwhelm students. Quality should prevail over quantity. 

According to the 2019 Sage Report, How are Students and Lecturers Using Educational Resources Today, academics, in alignment with student preferences, often utilize short reading lists comprising a limited number of resources. They view these lists as a starting point and anticipate that students will independently explore additional literature through their own research and search skills.

Regularly Review the List:
Periodically assess and update your reading list at least once a year. Remember that books on the list may not automatically update with new editions, so regular checks are necessary.
