This week we’re joined by the fantastic Miranda Melcher, a teacher, researcher, author, and a fellow of the higher education academy.
Miranda is currently completing her PhD on post-conflict military reconstruction at King’s College London’s Defence Studies Department, and she joins us to talk all about engaging students when teaching online.
Miranda’s enthusiasm for teaching is palpable. Her ability to engage an audience (and classroom) is evident in this interview, which is packed with tips and resources to do with making the most out of teaching all students virtually.
Miranda has taught as a teaching assistant, a PHD tutor, and provides 1:1 tutoring for students with learning differences.
We also look into the brand new and somehow age-old question – is it better for students to have their cameras on or off?
