In this session we will explore how critically reflective pedagogy and ways of knowing can impact levels of engagement and build a classroom that fosters growth and caring at its heart. Caring for ourselves and each other requires us to cultivate resilience and deepen our capacity for difficult conversations and compassion in the classroom and in our communities as we work for justice. This presentation will offer knowledge of critically reflective theory and define what communities of caring can look like and embody in the academy. In seeking to teach and learn from a place of knowing our deep connection with each other, we can find greater healing and understanding in our work. And, maybe even guide us in the creation of systems that are more joy-filled and caring infused. We will also explore contemplative practices that can ground us in this work.
