Speaker: Dr Sam Oakley

Is your reading list fulfilling its purpose? Are your students enthusiastic readers? We will use some studies on students' reading habits at UK universities to reflect on the challenges of getting students to read even the essential readings. We will suggest some strategies to encourage them to go beyond their lecture notes and become more independent learners. We welcome your own experiences / observations from your subject area.You might also be interested in the complementary session 'How to Create an Online Reading List – Reading Lists @ Glasgow', which will walk you through using the university's online reading list system.

This session is open to staff of the University of Glasgow. For the avoidance of doubt as to eligibility, it would be helpful if you could please register using your staff email address.
