2022 Faculty Symposium Part 2 Online
TEACHING AND LEARNING AS A RADICAL ACT OF HOPE IN THE 21st CENTURY:
The Power of Mindful Teaching and Contemplative Pedagogy
The Covid-19 pandemic required us to teach in new formats, using technology (some familiar, some less so) in new ways to help our students learn. While at times challenging, our collective experience has shown that we’re willing and able to adapt our teaching methods to overcome such challenges.
We’ll reflect on:
- how we can create rewarding teaching and learning interactions that welcome and support today’s students, providing both flexibility and rigor for all;
- lessons learned that enable us to rediscover meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in our teaching in all class formats;
- how contemplation and mindfulness can support student success
