2019 University-Wide Teaching & Learning Symposium

Contemplative Teaching: Connecting Meaning, Purpose, and Values

The theme of contemplative teaching is rooted in the same soil as the contemplative practices which grow from other physical, creative, and even spiritual endeavors—practices made more challenging in an age of distracting devices, tweets, and incivility. Sessions for this event explore ways to help students practice self-care in their chosen professions, reflect and act upon personal values, and much more.
