Navigating uncertainty is not easy, sometimes even uncomfortable. And we are right in it! Unplanned issues and new surprises may also be just around the corner. We are called to design a system that will prevent more fires to come and help us manage future ones that might develop.
Learning, Teaching, Growing Together is a 3-part series presenting a systems approach for helping students, teachers, and the educational system to increase resilience.
In this first installment in the series, educational consultant Geneviève Emond will get you moving your body to reflect on your teaching experience. The purpose of this embodiment exercise is to produce a better alignment (or realignment) of your teaching practice with what matters most for you and your students. This method can help you stay focused while navigating uncertainty.
Geneviève’s research, workshops and courses exist at the intersection of embodiment consciousness and professional practice. Join us to experience this new field of theory and practice while having fun with others, from home!
While this webinar is especially crafted for faculty and teachers, it is open to everyone and can also benefit students and University community members. Join the experience by registering for our Zoom webinar.
