Event Description
Mindfulness in Teaching: Using Meditation, Journaling and Poetry as Reflective Teaching Practices.

A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is a small group of faculty of eight to fifteen members who engage in an active, collaborative, semester-long program with a curriculum about enhancing teaching and learning around a particular topic. This is an opportunity to consider innovations, prepare course goals, deepen your scholarship of teaching and learning, all in collaboration with others.

Mindfulness is a way of bringing our full attention to the task at hand. We will explore mindfulness techniques that include journaling, poetry and medication. Mindfulness is a focus shift. When we are focused, we concentrate better, cope better and focus on how our students perceive what we are teaching.

The community will look at mindfulness techniques for teachers to use in their own lives, in the classroom and we will ask participants to create questions to be answered in future classes. Mindfulness can help us better respond to students as a class and as individuals and many of the techniques will explore can be used with students.

This Faculty Learning Community is led by Sherri Waas Shunfenthal and will meet every other Wednesday from 11 AM to 1 PM. (The beginning date depends on registration.) The only real requirement for an FLC is attendance.
