Why you don’t want to miss this!

Remote work now permeates campuses for both faculty and staff. Furthermore, the student experience has also changed as on-campus housing and events have been replaced by at-home study and virtual social encounters.

The rapid transition to online learning in Spring 2020 necessitated quick-thinking pedagogy. However, it is time to replace our quick-thinking pedagogy with deep-thinking pedagogy.

Contemplative pedagogy, according to Arthur Zajonc in his piece “Contemplative Pedagogy: A Quiet Revolution in Higher Education” (2013), offers a wide range of educational methods that support the development of student attention, emotional balance, empathetic connection, compassion, and altruistic behavior, while also providing new pedagogical techniques that support creativity and the learning of course content”. As a pedagogical method, contemplative pedagogy provides a necessary opportunity to take a deep breath and rethink the “new normal” in context of best practices for both teachers and students.
