About Us

 

As a growing approach in higher education, contemplative pedagogy has much to offer librarians as they work to elevate learning within their discipline and across campus. Contemplative practices such as meditation have been shown to reduce stress, improve retention of learning, enhance memory, and provide a fertile environment for creativity. Modeling these practices as librarians provides the framework for the contemplative pedagogy approach. This Interest Group will explore the concept of contemplative pedagogy in librarianship via discussion and programs at ACRL meetings and events.
