Event description

Description

"The more we practice coming back to the present with kind awareness the easier it is to actually be present – a vital quality for educators! Except perhaps for surgeons, teachers make more decisions than any other professional during the course of the workday, and the demands of the classroom require us to have simultaneously both expansive and focused attention.” – Meena Srinivasan, Teach, Breathe, Learn

The Bringing mindfulness to Life @ SCHOOL: PD for Educators is a transformative program for educators interested in integrating mindfulness into life at school for personal, professional and student wellbeing and learning.

The Bringing mindfulness to Life @ SCHOOL: PD for Educators comprises fifteen hours of personally identified professional development. The program can be delivered over several weeks or months to meet staff needs and availability at your school or regional cluster. The Bringing mindfulness to Life @ SCHOOL: PD for Educators is offered annually mid-year as a 3-day training program.

This mindfulness-based PD is for educators wanting to:

  • Restore joy, confidence and creativity to teaching and learning
  • Respond to increasing demands, complexity and change with calm, clarity and composure
  • Reduce stress and emotional reactivity within and beyond the classroom
  • Recognise that relationships are at the heart of effective teaching and learning

The Program

The content, scope and delivery of the Bringing mindfulness to Life @ SCHOOL: PD for Educators are informed by Sharn’s years of experience as an educator and teacher educator with expertise in integrated curriculum, reflective practice and mindfulness in education. This experience and expertise are combined with training in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), CARE (Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education), Mindful Schools and MindUP Curriculums to make the program relevant, responsive and effective.

  • increase focus and attention
  • improve communication with students, parents and colleagues
  • respond to challenging behaviours with clarity and calm
  • manage and maximize learning and preparation time
  • support the engagement of all students
  • reduce stress and emotional reactivity

Each session offers practical strategies to support personal, interpersonal and professional wellbeing, as well as promoting wellbeing of students and their effective engagement with classroom activities.
