P163-9974.1S21 - Adopting Mindfulness for Today’s Learning Environment

Course Details
Course Description: The global pandemic has impacted our world tremendously. Besides the fear and anxiety all of us are feeling, COVID-19 has changed our educational environment possibly forever. The way that teachers teach and students learn has been totally dismantled and reconfigured to support social distancing and safety. Whether a teacher or student is in a face-to-face, hybrid, or in a completely virtual learning environment, stress and anxiety has increased exponentially due to all the changes and uncertainty of the times. According to socio-emotional wellness leaders such as the Collaborative for Social and Emotional Academic Learning (CASEL) and Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, socio-emotional wellness education for teachers and students is needed now more than ever (Cipriano & Brackett, 2020). In the course Adopting Mindfulness for Today’s Learning Environment, participants will learn how to use mindfulness, which is a research-based strategy, to improve social and emotional wellness for themselves and their students during these historically difficult times. In addition, they will understand how mindfulness also impacts concentration, focus, and organization, which have suffered immensely under today’s educational conditions.
