Stamps Assistant Professor Kelly Murdoch-Kitt provided tips for working and learning remotely in a recent Michigan News article.
“Kelly Murdoch-Kitt…is a user experience designer and educator focused on people, systems and interpersonal interactions. She discusses tactics for remote learning and working, many of which are taken from a book that she recently co-authored titled “Intercultural Collaboration by Design,” which covers more than 30 visual thinking activities that help support online collaboration across borders…
[Murdoch-Kitt states] ‘Remote working and learning was already a growing trend before COVID-19. There’s a mental pivot that you need to do when you are suddenly in a situation where you don’t see people’s faces on a regular basis. You need to give yourself an opportunity to rethink your workflow—what can be done alone and what needs to be done together?’”
Murdoch-Kitt was also quoted in an article by the Detroit Free Press about the current shift to remote work.
