      DCAL's LCFF - Mindfulness and “otherness"

      October's LCFF will focus on Mindfulness and “otherness"  - a perspective to assist in teaching.  Please register here:

      What is your understanding and/or practice of mindfulness? How can that understanding and practice be applied in teaching and learning?

      This discussion and presentation, accompanied by lunch, will focus on the growing awareness that mindfulness is a tool in breaking down the barriers and biases between people and in relation to all beings. We’ll look at “otherness” or seeing others as disconnected from ourselves. And review the neuroscience of mindfulness and how it can breakdown “otherness” and affect behavior and happiness, thereby creating a better teacher and teaching environment. It is a valuable tool for teachers to use to create the” flow” state in the classroom as well as an open environment for expression and learning.

      We’ll finish with a simple mindfulness practice that can be done in “micro hits”, a few minutes in the day or in the classroom. 

      Andrea O’Connor is a MALS student and has 15 years as a mindfulness and yoga teacher. She is co-owner of the Hot Yoga Burlington Far Infra-red studio in Vermont. As well, she has  25 years experience in marketing management. 


      In order to cultivate a community focused on teaching and learning amongst graduate students and postdocs, DCAL has established a Learning Community for Future Faculty (LCFF). The focus of this group is to share the rewards and challenges of college teaching, while digging a bit deeper into best practices and techniques for teaching.  The LCFF meets monthly - the first Monday for Fall term.
