TEL Good Practice Guides – Checklists

We’ve been talking to colleagues at BU who are using digital tools in their teaching and have put together some updated guidance to share their good practice. In this blog, we’re focusing on Brightspace Checklists.

Our Good Practice guide to using Checklists includes top tips from us on how to set one up in your unit and some useful insights from other academic staff already using them. You can easily create your own Checklist using the examples provided.


What are Checklists?

Checklists can be used to create a simple list of items that students can tick off as they complete each one.  These can be used to give students a structured approach to completing more complex activities or help them prepare for a specific task or event. For example you may use them to deconstruct the steps required for a large assignment into smaller parts.
