SITT 2020 Interview: Andy Jones and Kirsten Harjes
From Andy Jones
Dr. Harjes talks about how to bring in herself and her personality as motivational "tools" to enhance her presence as an instructor; she also distinguishes her UC Davis course from run-of-the-mill online courses, commercial and otherwise. Dr. Harjes discusses motivating students to stay focused and attentive, including by bringing back instructional elements that she relied on before Zoom, including voice and volume modulations, appearance, body language, and facial expressions. You are invited to this discussion on how to “translate” the self to online and hybrid formats.
