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. We will explore how mindful practices are now being applied in different units at MSU in order to help members envision how mindful practices can be adapted to their own work environments. This LC will continue the work done over the past two years.
