Practicing Mindfulness in an Active Classroom
October 19, 2016
Alverno College is hosting a forum on practicing mindfulness in the classroom. The interactive program will engage educators in developing mindfulness practices and give attendees the opportunity to hear from each other how mindfulness supports teaching and learning in diverse contexts. Presenters will share what current research about the mind and brain suggests about strong practices, and will discuss how developing mindfulness practices for teacher and students can set a positive tone in the classroom, lower stress, and create safe and trusting relationships.
