Classes for Fall 2023

  • EDST 0111 Unlearning Colonial Habits In this course we will explore habits of knowing and being (epistemologies and ontologies) that are legacies of settler colonialism and examine whether “unlearning” such habits expands the possibilities of a liberal arts education. (This is a half credit course) (J. Miller-Lane)
  • FYSE 1038 Mindfulness in Education: Radical, Holistic Models of Learning What is mindfulness? And how is it useful in reframing approaches to education for engaged, critical learning? In this course we will explore the impact of contemplative practices in education, considering such questions as: what is learning and how does divergent or mindful thinking influence how we learn? (M. Hammerle)

Class List

Note that these classes are listed as containing a mindfulness component for a multitude of reasons. Remember too that every professor may teach the same class with a different perspective.  Some educators use contemplative pedagogy, others may not.  Some have exposure to mindfulness-based trainings, others may not.  Each professor has an equally valuable way into the class material. Similarly, some classes have an academic approach to understanding mindfulness whereas others may use an embodied approach.
