Contemplative Education: Teaching and Learning for Wholeness, Inclusivity and Social change
December 11, 2018 from 9am – 11:30am
Location: Chase Center
Featuring Laura I. Rendon Professor Emerita at the University of Texas-San Antonio and author of Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking Pedagogy): Educating for Wholeness, Social Justice and Liberation.
Contemplative education, which addresses the “whole person” and is concerned with both academic rigor, as well as social and emotional learning, can play a central role to engage students in socially conscious deep learning experiences. This workshop will introduce participants to the field of contemplative education and to pedagogic tools that connect inner and outer learning and emphasize inclusivity, activism, emancipation and social change.
