Contemplative Practices in Higher Education: Powerful Methods to Transform Teaching and Learning

Written by Barbezat and Bush, this book discusses how contemplative pedagogy is more than a trendy new teaching technique. It is a way for instructors to empower students to integrate their own experience into the theoretical material they are being taught in order to deepen their understanding; help students to develop sophisticated problem-solving skills; support students' sense of connection to and compassion for others; and engender inquiries into students' most profound questions.
