Contemplative Practice in the Classroom
Kroll, Keith
New Directions for Community Colleges, n151 p111-113 Fall 2010
This volume has offered both the theory and practice for a model of contemplative teaching and learning in community colleges--a way of teaching, of learning, of thinking that has often been missing in higher education. Contemplative teaching and learning, with its focus on community, reflection, and mindfulness--in short, on what it means to be human--is a complement to the objective and data-driven education that has a strong foundation and tradition in higher education. This chapter offers a brief overview of the contemplative practices discussed in the volume.
