This webinar explores graduate student experiences in an online course intended to introduce the role of mindfulness and contemplative pedagogy in adult learning settings. Learners were enrolled in Mindfulness in Adult Learning during the COVID-19 pandemic when they were working and learning from home. Students participated in readings and mindfulness practices online with optional Zoom meetings to deepen understanding and begin to establish their own regular practice. A study following the course revealed how students engaged with mindfulness one and three months after the course ended. Course design and content recommendations will be discussed.

Webinar Takeaways: 

  • Examine course design and content delivery options for learning and practicing mindfulness in an online/virtual course. 
  • Analyze graduate student experiences in an online mindfulness course.

Dr. Emily McRobbie serves as Co-Department Chair and Assistant Professor for the Adult and Higher Education program at the University of Southern Maine. She developed a new course for this online graduate program titled Mindfulness in Adult Learning. Her scholarship interests include mindfulness and contemplative pedagogy in education, transformative learning, and diversity. Emily also leads the Maine Mindfulness Network.
