    Normal type of listing items

    - How can we actively use… (or how to use actively…)

    Type2:
    - Creation of and access to an updated record of…
    - Organization of joint professional workshops.
    - Use of…

    Re: Normal type of listing items

    I'd use 2 or 3. I don't really have a preference between those two. 1 is unnecessarily wordy.

    Note that in 3, you need to remove "to" after "accessing".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
