Karen Ragoonaden (Educational Studies, Winnipeg): Wellbeing and Resilience in Humanist Teacher Education: Literature, Pedagogy, and the Modelling of Mindful Futures


In this talk, I discuss how mindfulness practices can provide pathways to engage in responsive and responsible dialogues about equity, diversity and inclusion. The emergence of critical mindfulness movements seek to address historical, political, economic, and social inequities through greater awareness of self, of the other and of society. Respecting a sustained exchange between the humanities and the educational sciences, this talk examines the potential of literary and educational texts as provocations questioning  the traditional protocols of teaching and learning. By providing a conceptual basis for wellbeing and resilience, we can model mindsets emphasizing an open and calm receptivity where unlearning and re-learning can occur.
