Slow Teaching, Deep Learning: Contemplative Approaches to Engaged Learning (Center for Teaching & Learning)

Thursday, November 16, 2017
12:00pm to 1:30pm

Instructors often wonder what they can do to help their students move from simply surviving college to thriving in college. In this workshop, you will learn how to use contemplative practices to help students approach learning mindfully and form more meaningful and personal connections to their academic pursuits. These tools will help you to deepen student engagement and cultivate their mindset for academic success.

At the end of this session you will be able to:
- Identify characteristics of students who are thriving rather than surviving
- Articulate the role contemplative pedagogy can have in enhancing students’ learning experiences
- Apply principles and practices to your own teaching context

This workshop is facilitated by Kenny Hirschmann and Amanda Jungels, Center for Teaching and Learning.
