A Moment of Silence
Invitation and Dialog

Can a simple technique enhance student learning in your classroom? Does a practice more commonly associated with religion and spirituality have a legitimate role in education? We will discuss the potential for a moment of silence to improve awareness and attention, as well as the challenges and pitfalls this may present. Interested faculty will be invited to participate in a formal study of the question.

This session is intended as an interactive discussion rather than a formal presentation. No preparation is needed, but if you have a few minutes you may wish to listen to our interview with Arthur Zajonc for some background information.

It is hoped that this will be the beginning of a sustained dialog on topics such as contemplative pedagogy and integrative learning. If you are interested but can't make the session please let us know.
