Do contemplative techniques allow instructors to be present with, open to, and creative about the big questions of our disciplines, emergent moments in the classroom, and our students as individuals—even in a big group? Join us for an experiential workshop that invites participants to try contemplative techniques together and discuss the challenges and rewards of enacting them— and the habits of mind, mood, and perception they develop—in the classroom.

This workshop will be led by Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies and Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature Lisa Freinkel.
