Event description

Description

Its no secret that teaching is a stressful job! A lot of educator training focuses on content and pedagogy overlooking the real social, emotional and cognitive demands of teaching itself. Practicing mindfulness can enhance a teacher’s overall sense of well-being and develop more positive ways of relating in the classroom. It can help us rein in knee jerk reactions that arise in our work and instead choose a calm and compassionate approach. Instructions and resources for beginning a mindfulness practice will be provided.

Facilitator: Kim Gerrish

This session is open to Confederation College Faculty, Support Staff and Administration and counts as an ISWC Elective.

Regional Campuses will be connected via Video Conference and the deadline to register is November 28, 2016 by 4:00 p.m.
