Technology promises productivity and even happiness — but does it deliver?
With so many apps and options for accessing information and communicating, it’s more important than ever to be highly selective and intentional in our choices.

Learn about the concepts of digital minimalism and how to implement them.
Date: Saturday, September 14, 2019

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Faculty Development invites you to join us for a regular group meditation. We'll meet each Thursday afternoon throughout the summer of 2016. Drop in when you can.
What to expect?
As the meditation room is located directly beneath the bell tower, we are using the bells in our meditation. They chime quarterly, so our period of silence begins at 12:30 and ends at 12:45.

You needn't have any experience with meditating; just stop by and give it a try. There's no commitment and no pressure.
Meditation has numerous well-documented benefits, including stress management, improved emotional balance, increased focus and awareness and increased responsiveness to student needs.
