The Center for Teaching and Learning Presents Experiments in Learning: A Pedagogy for Fostering Holistic Student Outcomes in the Arts and Sciences

Featuring LifeWorks' Instructors, GSE Professor anthony lising antonio and Director of Stanford Storytelling Project Jonah Willihnganz 

A nationwide move for developing the “whole student”–with attention to mind, body, and spirit–invites us to re-frame educational goals for students, from simply acquiring knowledge and skills for a profession to developing inner resources and skillful means for creating meaningful lives and communities. In this session, we will discuss the pedagogy of Lifeworks, a program designed for achieving holistic student development, and how its strategies might be adopted in courses across the curriculum. We will share some evaluation data as well as take attendees through examples of combining traditional scholarly inquiry with creative expression and contemplative and other embodied practices.
