Review: The Contemplative Mind in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning by Patricia Owen-Smith
Keywords:SoTl, contemplative pedagogy, contemplative education,
AbstractThe development of the field of contemplative education depends on diverse perspectives, justifications, empirical studies and conceptualizations. One crucial perspective requires the advancement of dialogues between contemplative practices and the field of education, its ancestries and its contemporary discourses. Such dialogues can take different forms, one of which is undertaken in Owen-Smith's highly recommended book The Contemplative Mind in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
