Abstract

Creating space for well-being and mindfulness activities in learning environments have been shown to enhance student success.  In the first part of this session, a group of panelist speakers will engage in a facilitated discussion exploring what we mean by mindfulness and well-being, as well as the role of mindfulness and well-being in promoting self-care and learning.  In the second part of the session, a second group of panelist speakers will briefly describe the specific activities and strategies they use in their teaching.  This session will also engage participants in mindfulness practices throughout the session.  Participants will leave with simple, concrete ways to engage their students in mindfulness activities in their courses and ways to frame the value of these exercises when presenting to students.
