Contemplative Inquiry, Pedagogy and Practice - Spring 2022



Contemplative Inquiry, Pedagogy and Practice - Spring 2022


Mon., Jan 31 2022 - 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM


New Cabell Hall, German Conference Room (236)

EligibilityAll UVA PhD students and postdocs are welcome to attend this workshop.

Navigating the various roles and responsibilities of a graduate program can be disorienting and stressful. As a result, graduate students may find themselves unthinkingly adapting to social norms, doubting their own capacities, or losing the sense of joy that comes from good work. In this interactive 90-minute workshop, we will learn how contemplative approaches to research, teaching, and daily life can enhance our well-being as scientists, scholars, teachers, and students. Drawing from both the art and science of human flourishing and with particular attention to the digital environment, we will learn theories and techniques for thriving in graduate school and postdoc training, for fostering meaningful and inspiring relationships to our work, and for maintaining integrity with ourselves and our peers as we embark upon this transformational academic journey.
This is the second session of the PhD+ Spring 2022 Foundations series. Participants need not participate in the entire series to attend this workshop. 
Facilitated by Karolyn Kinane, Ph.D., Associate Director of Pedagogy and Faculty Engagement at the Contemplative Sciences Center.
