*Note: This is the same session offered at two different times.

We live in a culture that seems to devalue careful, deliberate attention to intellectual work, which means that we often find ourselves swimming upstream in teaching our classes. The good news is that even in an “age of distraction,” we can use strategies to help retrain students’ ability to develop and maintain focus. Participants in this session will experience several practices designed to help improve attention and learn more about why those practices actually work. You will leave with ideas for how you can structure opportunities in your own classes for students to develop more mindful approaches to their academic work.
