Students learn what they care about, from people they care about and who, they know, care about them.
Kathleen Jackson has spent the majority of her career in higher education, primarily in the areas of academic advising, training, and career development. Currently the Career Advisor in the College of Business at URI, she works with juniors and seniors preparing them for the workplace. In this role she creates and delivers an on-line career development class that is a degree requirement in the business school. It was this class that drew her to the Summer Institutes in Digital Literacy. She wanted to make her class more interactive but needed the pedagogy to make it happen. SIDL has been the perfect platform to allow her to do that. Kathleen has a passion for capturing others’ stories and plans to make digital storytelling a significant part of her future. You can find Kathleen on LinkedIn and Twitter. @KJ40818548. Kathleen holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Providence College, a Master of Arts degree in Counselor Education from Rhode Island College, and a CAGS from Salve Regina University in Holistic Leadership.
