Hello. Given the strong interest in the book club idea, we’ve created a EDUCAUSE CIO Book Club sign-up sheet on Google Docs. If you are interested in participating in the book club, please sign up at http://tinyurl.com/6s7nx5r/ instead of sending replies to the list. I’ve already added all who expressed interest in replies to the list, but please check the spreadsheet.

 

If you are interested in facilitating discussion or hosting the club in an environment TBD, please mark “X” in the “I volunteer to facilitate” column. Kim Bethea, Administrative Director - Madison College Technology Services, has kindly volunteered to get things rolling. Thank you, Kim!

 

EDUCAUSE will also set up an IdeaScale page where book club members can suggest and vote on book titles. Based on Theresa’s message, I believe she sees the book club as self-sufficient and member-led, but EDUCAUSE is happy to help with this initial set-up. I’ve pasted Theresa’s original message below for reference.

 

Thanks, everyone,

Lisa

Subject: [CIO] Book Club idea

 

I'd like to follow-up on that book club idea.  There's a lot of reading on our reading list from Lisa's post:   link to The CIO Bookshelf wiki 

Perhaps there's a book you really want to read and would benefit from the motivation and discussion of a group.

Maybe you've already read a book and would like to lead a discussion.

Could we try to create a book club?
For starters, maybe we get one volunteer from the list to pick a book and offer a discussion.  The volunteer leader could post:
"Starting Dec. 1 and for the month of December, I'll lead the E-CIO book club in the reading of "Book Title."  Those interested should contact me.  The group will be limited to the first xx number of responses."

The leader could set a limit, but for a good discussion the group would be limited to 12 or less, I would think.

The leader could also pick the tool of choice for their discussion, including conference call, Google +, whatever.

What do you think?
