(Symposium schedule at a glance 1 page)
The Symposium took place Friday April 1, and Saturday April 2, 2016. Some presentations are available through the agenda link. Report on the Symposium (PDF).
In 2014 the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society awarded the UA a small grant to establish the Contemplative Pedagogy Faculty/Professional Learning Communities. Part of these grant funds were earmarked to hold a conference where the learning communities can share their experiences and research on different aspects of contemplative pedagogy practices. At this symposium invited speakers and UA practitioners will provide talks and workshops to help spread the word on what works and how practices can be evaluated for effectiveness.
