Center for Teaching Excellence
Post-doctoral Research Associate and Instructor at the Beloved Living Center in Redmond, Washington
This workshop will provide an introduction to a field
of education known as contemplative pedagogy (CP), which brings mindfulness into
the classroom and cultivates different ways of knowing. CP provides access to ways of
learning and understanding that are complementary to approaches found in traditional
liberal arts education. CP can be applied across disciplines from the sciences to the arts.
In this workshop, faculty will learn about:
• The concept of contemplative pedagogy
• Benefits of using it in the classroom
• Reflections on the relations of culture & context to teaching and learning
• Examples of application across disciplines
Come prepared to enjoy yourself, and relax into an atmosphere of mindful teaching and learning.
Beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch.
Please register as space is limited.
