Individual Presentation or Panel Title

Reading In: Reading Groups as Professional Development

Abstract

The discussion’s main focus will be on the ways that reading groups can foster professional relationships and how they can help emerging and new scholars find their “niche” if they are still searching for a focus or way to uniquely establish themselves in their department. The discussion will also briefly cover reading groups as ways to initiate partnerships and build cross-department relationship. We will also discuss how to forge professional relationships with their colleagues through reading groups.

Presentation Description

This discussion will, as well, include outlining and brainstorming how to get a reading group started within the department or area. Finally, we will discuss ways to select and find readings at low or no cost and online resources for managing reading groups, as well as options for maintaining reading groups online across campuses and/or while socially distancing.
