Notes on Contemplative Practices, Teaching and Learning

Dr. Robert Roeser, Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychology at Portland State University, shares his notes on the field of contemplative science and the opportunity to optimize human development through contemplative education. He notes that findings in neuroscience that support the effects of contemplative practices on the mind, such as evidence on working memory and neuroplasticity, can be applied to teaching and learning in order to support outcomes related to healthy human development.
