Exploring Emerging Perceptions of Contemplative Pedagogy Among Faculty Participating in a Professional Development Program

Hirschmann, Kenneth Alan

This study seeks to explore the emerging perceptions of Contemplative Pedagogy of a small number of faculty that have engaged in a workshop on the subject. Through surveys and an interview, the story of the development of their practice unfolds in order to glimpse at the reflective practices that drive their professional and personal development, and their ability to reconceive their understanding of and approach to teaching. By incorporating contemplative methods into a professional reflective practice, faculty might gain the experience and comfort with the techniques to begin applying them to their professional practice.
