When we think about learning, traditionally the emphasis has been laid on contents and cognition and the role of emotions has been overlooked.
Today we know emotions need to be observed and acknowledged to make learning more effective and rewarding. Clearly, it´s high time we helped our students manage stress, reduce anxiety and focus their attention.
In this workshop, we will address the need for integrating different disciplines such as mindfulness, neurosciences and positive education in our daily teaching, not only to enhance the learning process but also to create well-being in our classrooms.
