Contemplative pedagogy is a growing approach used to assist students to deepen their self-regulatory learning processes, broaden their problem-solving skills, enhance their focus, and expand their empathy and compassion for others. This two-session book study will explore the theory and applied practice of using meditative experiences to complement traditional pedagogical methods across all disciplines of study. Our format will include brief presentations by the workshop leaders, experiential activities, and a discussion of the text Contemplative Practices in Higher Education: Powerful Methods to Transform Teaching and Learning by Daniel Barbezat and Mirabai Bush, leaders in the field of contemplative pedagogy. Participants will be sent a link to the ebook upon confirmation of registration.
These sessions are open to faculty and graduate student TAs with no experience at all in contemplative practice, as well as participants in last semester's contemplative book study and those with meditative experience.
Space is limited. Please register in advance,
and only if you can commit to both sessions.
