STIP 604 Mindfulness for Educators

3 credits 45 hours
600 level graduate course

This course will help teachers understand the science and benefits of classroom mindfulness practices. Throughout the semester, educators will learn mindfulness strategies they can employ immediately to help their students lead healthy lives, learn healthy coping skills, and make healthy choices. Educators will experience the benefits of these strategies first hand, as they try these out together and with instructor feedback. Together participants will discover how self-care allows better connections throughout each moment of the day, while also compiling a list of ways to incorporate mindfulness into their daily classroom practice. This course aims to rejuvenate educators’ classrooms and classroom procedures.

This course may be repeated for credit.
