GFD TALK Event: The Science and Practice of Mindfulness in Higher Education


In this session, Dr. Reb will explain an ongoing mindfulness-based educational intervention funded by the Singapore Ministry of Education: a 13-week undergraduate elective module, “The Science and Practice of Mindfulness at Work”, designed to facilitate positive student growth and well-being. After sharing his experiences and observations of the first run of this intervention, he will touch on how this type of intervention might be extended to graduate education, faculty development, and other areas of higher education beyond Singapore.
