You will need to find and bring a printed copy of a reading of your choosing to lecture on Mar 3.
These readings must:
- Be readable in under 30 minutes. A good rule of thumb is every 250 words = 1-2 minutes of reading depending on how fast/slow of a reader you are.
- Presents a discussion relevant to your practice. Arguments, opinions, discussions related to your practice are fair game. Skills, 'how-to', or introductions to new methods/practices are not permitted.
- Be something printable. Videos and podcasts — unless there is a printable transcript — are likely not going to be usable in this exercise. Books, articles, social media posts are likely easier to print and discuss.
For these readings be prepared to answer questions such as (but not limited to):
- What is your practice?
- How reliable are the authors of this discussion?
- Why and how is this relevant to your practice?
- What is your opinion on the discussion and why?
