Supporting and developing the curriculum by putting contemplation back into HE: enhancing students’ attention and effectiveness
Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh
25 May 2012

Contemporary Higher Education is under increasing pressure to justify its existence, be cost effective and produce better graduates. One attempt to achieve this has been the formulation of graduate attributes (GAs). These are attributes that graduates are expected to develop during their studies, in addition to the knowledge and skills relevant to their discipline. Over the last 10 years, there has been a rapid increase in interest in the use of Contemplative Pedagogies (CPs) in HE to enhance learning and teaching. The focus of this event is the application of CPs to enhance student teachers’ ability to learn in any subject.
