Contemplative Practices Higher Ed Cover

Contemplative Practices in Higher Education

Contemplative pedagogy is a way for instructors to empower students to integrate their own experience into the theoretical material they are being taught in order to deepen their understanding, help students to develop sophisticated problem-solving skills, support students’ sense of connection to and compassion for others, and engender inquiries into students' most profound questions. All sessions will be held on Friday from 11:00-12:00 in 159 Fitzelle Faculty Lounge.

Dates: January 18, February 1, February 15, February 22.
