Storrs Campus
ROWE 319

Most instructors and students engage in a constant struggle against distraction. Simply banning electronic devices can create a false sense of focus, as students’ minds will continue wandering as they wonder about reactions to their latest Snap. Developing focus and increasing attention are only two of the many benefits of incorporating contemplative pedagogy into our classes. Mindfulness practices have been shown to help focus attention, suspend judgment, foster creativity, and enhance empathy and compassion. In this session, we will report on current research and share our own experiences and reflections on the use mindfulness practices.
