By: Columbia College Chicago Online News

Welcome to #Curated, a series that highlights what our students, faculty, staff and alumni are reading, listening to and watching. Our first edition features Kayla Jutzi, an Instructional Designer for Columbia College Chicago Online. Her work translates courses from the traditional classroom to an interactive, digital experience—making them available to more students than ever.

Check out what Kayla’s interests are outside of her daily work routine.

What is the last book you read?

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. It was such a suspenseful book that offers a unique story and ties in the lives of different people from different times. I can’t say that I hated anything about it.

What is the most listened-to song in your library?

“Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake. I used to play it a lot when I taught dance lessons, and it is by far one of my favorites.

What is your top “movie night” pick?

To be honest, I’d rather watch a funny show on Netflix than a movie. Right now my husband and I are going through all of “30 Rock.” The team of Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin is pretty great.

What news source do you consume every day?

NPR, as it is easy to listen to on the radio in the morning while I’m getting ready for work.

What is your favorite museum?

Probably the Museum of Science and Industry because it’s so interactive. I lived in Washington, D.C. for eight years, and I found that not only are the Smithsonian museums awesome, but the entire city is full of monuments and places that offer immersive learning experiences and they were right in my backyard.
