From a graduate student perspective, I have found it helpful to collect discussion points/questions at the start of the meeting and writing them on a board. Each of them can then be discussed in turn, which gives the meeting structure but also makes sure everybody's interests are addressed.


Take turns picking the reading. I was involved in a pragmatist reading group in grad school. It was quite enjoyable, and we learned from each other.

I've been in an online reading group for about 10 months now and we've been using Perusall to collectively annotate the texts we're discussing. If you can upload PDFs of your readings it gives a terrific way to start discussion threads that can be taken up during your meetings. It's also free for now (fingers crossed they can keep it that way):
