IV.I Numbering Pages and Images
A consecutive (page) numbering is easier to find (or retrieve) information and possibly make an estimate of the needed processing time.
IV.II Table of Contents and Consistent Layout for Titles
- Make a clear table of contents which offers an overview of what is covered in the study material.
- Limit the number of titles to three levels at the most.
- Titles are concise word groups that represent how the content is organised.
- Use a decimal hierarchical numbering (e.g. 1, 1.1, 1.1.1).
- Put your titles in bold.
- Font size can differ for titles and subtitles.
- Use indents for subtitles in the table of contents.
Especially when processing complex knowledge and skills, it is important that students can study in a meaningful way and that they use frameworks and structures to frame new knowledge. Especially at the start, it can offer students structure to include a table of contents at the beginning of a chapter/syllabus. Gradually, you can also make students responsible for this, for example by having them come up with a structure at the beginning of a chapter/syllabus by creating mind maps or by having them draw up the table of contents themselves.
IV.III Background Information
An example of a well-structured table of contents can be found in the house-style guide.
