Mindfulness curious? Wondering about contemplative practices in higher education settings? Faculty and educational professionals can increase the engagement of students by intentionally including practices that increase attention, reduce anxiety, support resiliency in the face of challenging situations, and help students engage in self-reflection. Come join us for two half-days of facilitated conversations about the principles of mindfulness and explorations of the use of contemplative practices in the classroom and the workplace. At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have a variety of techniques to apply to your work with students and colleagues.
In the Contemplative Pedagogy FLC (CP-FLC) we will introduce you to contemplative practices that can be used in the classroom, have you try out these practices during the Spring semester, and then help you develop and implement a plan for systematically using and assessing selected practices in a class during the Fall semester.
This FLC, led by Dr. Pamela Redela and Marnie Eldridge, M.A., will engage participants in mindfulness practice and have critical discussions on the required readings. These discussions will be guided by FLC leaders with active participation from participants
Please include a short description of knowledge/experience in the aforementioned areas and why you are interested in Contemplative Pedagogy. Priority will be given to faculty who submit their application by January 27th, 2021.
A trauma-informed pedagogy enables faculty to increase their awareness of the complexities of trauma and the impact past life experiences have on student learning and student wellbeing. This series introduces concepts that help participants recognize how institutions and university structure may unintentionally replicate student trauma, thus triggering emotions, cognitions, and behavior associated with the original traumatic experience. This FLC, led by Dr. Pamela Redela and Dr. Betina Scott, will cover relevant scholarship on trauma-informed teaching, and engage participants in critical discussions of the required readings. These discussions will be guided by FLC leaders and guests that have related experience and/or expertise on the topics discussed, from inside and outside of CSUSM.
