CIB: Normalise nodding again

Unless you're living under a rock, you’ve noticed that all our teaching is on Zoom.My pet peeve on Zoom is that when I speak others just don’t react to it at all. In pre-Covid times people would be so engaged in what you said, and they would show it with a simple nod or eye-contact. Now I feel like I am literally talking to no-one. I always make the effort to nod or smile when other people are speaking. It validates people in what they are saying. Just because it's virtual doesn’t mean we can’t still support each other in the ways we used to - bring back nodding! - Matthew King
