The Power of Phenomenology in Teaching and Learning
Session Time and Location
Strong educational institutions foster the development of skills citizens need to innovate and produce tangible results, bolstering economies and sustaining progress. Do students care about self-transformation and acquiring contemplative skills or is their primary focus to become workforce competitive? This workshop will examine faculty perception of the purpose of higher education according to their students. Does their understanding align with their students'? Workshop participants will explore concrete, evidence-informed strategies to (1) align what students expect from their education with what faculty think; (2) transform the classroom into a sanctuary where all students can explore life, the inner and the outer.
