Contemplation & Conversation

Graphic Conversation

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching invites you to join us for a regular group meditation. We'll meet each Monday afternoon throughout the fall 2014 semester. Drop in when you can.

What to expect?

We'll do a brief (ten minute) silent meditation together. Afterward, we'll discuss how to carry the spirit of the meditation forward into the rest of our professional and personal lives, including our teaching and learning.

But I've never done this before!

You needn't have any experience with meditating; just stop by and give it a try. There's no commitment and no pressure.

Why meditate?

Meditation has numerous well-documented benefits, including stress management, improved emotional balance, increased focus and awareness and increased responsiveness to student needs.

What does this have to do with teaching and learning?

Everything! It's called contemplative pedagogy. That's what we'll be talking about. Come join us to learn more.
