Colleagues from Griffith University gathered for a celebration of teaching and learning this week and I had the honour of presenting an open class session.
The forum was called ‘Teaching Using Engaging and Empowering Pedagogies’ and my class was titled ‘Practising mindfulness in the tertiary classroom’.
It was an attempt at putting into practice some of the research we have been undertaking in this space in recent years.
For the research underpinning it, please see:

You should get the gist of the mindfulness-based activities involved from the slide show captured below.
