Objectives

After completing this subunit you will be able to: 

  • Generate a title for an adapted resource that adheres to best practices. 

Title

The title of a resource is often the first thing a user will notice when browsing resources, regardless of the resource display. Check out a few examples around QUBES, and notice how prominent the titles are:

Best Practices for Writing Titles

  1. Title includes no author names.
  2. Title is unique.
    1. Not an exact copy of the original title
    2. Not an exact copy of another adaptation's title 
  3. Title includes a distinguishing feature.

Look at the titles of the examples below. The original is followed by two adaptations:

Students use small mammal data from the National Ecological Observatory Network to understand necessary steps of data management from data collection to data analysis by estimating small mammal population sizes using the Lincoln-Peterson model.

This adaptation consists of three exercises that introduce students to 1) format spreadsheet data tables, 2) carry out spreadsheet quality control, and 3) count/sort/filter data of interest in order to conduct a pilot analysis on NEON small mammal data.

While there are similarities, of course, the titles provide you with information about how the adaptations are distinct from the original.
