Course Description:

Adopting Mindfulness for Today’s Learning Environment

The global pandemic has impacted our world tremendously. Besides the fear and anxiety all of us are feeling, COVID-19 has changed our educational environment possibly forever.  The way that teachers teach and students learn has been totally dismantled and reconfigured to support social distancing and safety.  Whether a teacher or student is in a face-to-face, hybrid, or in a completely virtual learning environment, stress and anxiety has increased exponentially due to all the changes and uncertainty of the times. According to socio-emotional wellness leaders such as the Collaborative for Social and Emotional Academic Learning (CASEL) and Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, socio-emotional wellness education for teachers and students is needed now more than ever (Cipriano & Brackett, 2020).
