Faculty Teaching Excellence Program



Teaching Mindfulness Practices

Professor Deborah Haynes, Art and Art History & Libby Residential Academic Program Director

Professor Michael Zimmerman, Philosophy, Director, Center for the Humanities and the Arts

In Spring 2008 Deborah Haynes and Michael Zimmerman initiated a three-part colloquium on the philosophy and uses of contemplative and mindfulness practices in the university classroom. The first session "Contemplative Practices in the Classroom: Creating Space for Listening and Speaking" offered an overall rationale for introducing mindfulness practices. The Fall 2008 colloquium, "Learning Enhancement through Mindfulness Practices" focused on the empirical scientific and psychological research about the efficacy of this pedagogical method.
 On Wednesday February 18, 2009, Professors Haynes and Zimmerman will offer "Teaching Mindfulness Practices," a hands-on workshop that offers direct experience with several forms of contemplative practice.
