Upcoming Contemplative Pedagogy Events

Posted on: October 8, 2014

Yesterday we introduced the idea of contemplative pedagogy and offered a working definition of this teaching practice. We said that, although you may be new to it, contemplative pedagogy is rooted in some very old techniques.

You may be thinking, “who on earth would want to study this?” Well, a lot of people, actually. And some very close to home.

Wake Forest will host multiple lectures and presentations on the topic of contemplative pedagogy and ways to enhance the experience for students using mindfulness in the classroom. Check them out if you’re interested!
