The Science and Practice of Presence: Can It Transform Teaching and Learning?

Speaker: Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA Semel Institute’s Mindful Awareness Research Center 

How can contemplative practices be used to promote student and faculty success? This interactive keynote explores didactic and experiential approaches to contemplative practices. You will learn the cutting-edge scientific research behind these practices, especially how they impact stress, attention, learning, memory, emotional regulation, and presence in the classroom. You will also practice tools for self-management and personal well-being, and explore how these tools can impact individuals, classrooms, and the culture at FIU.
