Virtual Vulnerability

A Virtual Chat about Vulnerability in Teaching & Learning by Michael Jorgensen

During the Fall 2021 semester, I was invited to participate in the Online Learning Digital Fluency Fellowship. This fellowship involved a series of discussions around the topic of humanizing online learning. My reflections on these discussions are captured in the following video. In this, I sit down with Christian Metaxas and James Bailey from Trent Online to discuss my experience. My reflections revolve around vulnerability, expertise, and experimentation as an educator. The conversation attempts to connect these themes to the digital spaces we facilitate for our students. We chose a fireside lounge in virtual reality as the setting for our discussion – a digital space embodying the very spirit of these concepts we discuss. With Christian as the host and James as the curator of this digital space, this reflective conversation comes alive.
