The Keele Institute for Innovation and Teaching Excellence (KIITE) would like to welcome contributions to Becoming Well Read, our annual academic reading symposium, April 1st 2020.
This exciting, practice-focused day brings together experiences from a range of communities to explore academic reading practices, reflect on the challenges of teaching reading for academic purposes, and share interesting and innovative methods.
Following last year's highly successful event, the second symposium will continue to explore this vital but often overlooked aspect of academic literacy. It will be valuable to anyone whose central focus is educational, learning or academic development, and to academic teaching staff who are looking for new ways of supporting their students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Within the general theme of reading for academic purposes, we welcome proposals for active and participatory workshops of 45 minutes on the following themes:
> Innovative approaches to teaching or supporting academic reading practices.
> Relationships between reading and scholarship/research/disciplinary identity.
> The role of social reading practices in the academic community.
> Academic reading as pleasure.
> Searching, selecting and curating reading (library perspectives).
> Transitions from FE to HE.
> The use of digital technologies to support critical reading.
Proposals should be submitted by midnight on Monday, 27th January, 2020 here.
