Contemplative Pedagogies as Universal Design – Teaching to Reach the Oppressed, the Anxious and the Introverted (A Dialogue)

August 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

As a follow up to Monica’s Faculty Retreat Presentation, she will present further empirical support for contemplative – “quiet” – pedagogies and the impacts on student engagement across contexts. The focus will be on contemplative pedagogy as universal design, with a focus on teaching in ways that allow the oppressed, the anxious and the introverted to feel welcomed and engaged in the classroom. Monica will also discuss the utility of contemplative pedagogies in working with and through emotions in the classroom that can help push through (what is often assumed to be) resistance when teaching about privilege to the privileged.

Facilitator: Monica Edwards
