This semester we will be reading ‘Integrating Mindfulness into Anti-Oppression Pedagogy – Social Justice in Higher Education‘ by Beth Berila. At each Reading Circle session we will talk about one selected chapter from this book and discussing challenges and implications for our classroom and studio teaching practices. We’ll ask the participants to read the chapter ahead of time. We look forward to a thoughtful exchange with many of you at these events, grounded in contemporary literature on Pedagogy!
RSVP now for Reading Circle sessions at the Center for Teaching and Learning. A light lunch will be provided.
