Overview of the Labs

Book club

The point of this session is to explore shared motivations and inspirations using books. Many academics will have been inspired by a particular piece of writing so this is a good way to do this. There are several ways you can run this session and the options are discussed in the documents below.

The idea is for the groups to discuss the book sections and say what they thought of them, if they liked the writing style, how well they communicated the research and if they were inspired. If you have enough experienced speakers and facilitators present you may want to put one in each group and ask them to lead the discussions. Otherwise you can ask each group to select a moderator from within the group or to organise themselves organically.

Parts of this session needs to be organised in advance so we recommend you read the below documents in detail before planning this session.
