Mindful Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

In this Learning Community, we will define what mindfulness means in the context of teaching in a higher education setting.  While mindfulness practices are often associated with stress-reduction, we will explore how such practices also enable the development of empathy, emotional resilience, and ethical awareness. This LC will continue the work begun during the 2019-2020 Academic year, while focusing specifically on how mindful practices can be applied both to DEI goals and to the challenges of dealing with current covid-19 social restrictions.
