Contemplative Pedagogy Initiative

The Contemplative Pedagogy Initiative brings together USC faculty to learn from each other about using reflective, meditative, contemplative, or other similar elements in teaching. This session will feature faculty from different disciplines sharing the ways they weave contemplative approaches into teaching and learning. Come prepared to share your practices and your questions!

Instructor Well-being and Teaching Effectiveness
Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015 12:30 - 1:30pm

Please join us for a discussion about how contemplative practices of instructors can influence teaching effectiveness and the well-being of students. We will identify some of the pitfalls in professional development, the impact of those pitfalls on teaching effectiveness, and strategies for instructors to be mindful of themselves while also attending to the well-being and development of others.
