Please consider signing the petition to form an ACRL Contemplative Pedagogy Interest Group!
Contemplative pedagogy, steadily gaining footing in higher education, has much to offer librarians as they work to elevate learning within their discipline and across campus. Contemplative practices such as meditation, journaling or reflective silence have been shown to reduce stress, improve retention of learning, enhance memory, and provide a fertile environment for creativity. Modeling these practices as librarians provides the framework for the contemplative pedagogy approach. We’ve proposed starting an ACRL Interest Group to explore the concept of contemplative pedagogy in librarianship via discussion and programs at ACRL meetings and events.
