3rd Annual ACMHE Conference: The Contemplative Campus

Posted on Jul 18, 2011

November 11-13, 2011
Amherst College, Amherst, MA

The conference will focus on contemplative approaches to teaching, learning and knowing taking place campus-wide in institutions of higher education.

Contributed papers, a poster session, and artistic presentations as well as plenary speakers, panels and practice sessions will explore the ways that contemplative practices serve higher education. As educators and administrators integrate these practices into classrooms, studios, and co-curricular initiatives, they are learning how they develop greater mindfulness, open heartedness, and insight.
