How can contemplative reading support learning as a participatory experience? How might the intentional integration of silence and reflection make reading aloud in class more meaningful? In this session, we will consider the ways in which contemplative reading can bring greater understanding and connection to the words of a text.

This event is part of the Slow Teaching, Deep Learning workshop. This series for members of the Columbia teaching community seeks to develop reflective communities of inquiry through contemplative practice. To learn more about this program and its requirements, visit: Slow Teaching, Deep Learning.
