Nurturing education of our kids: lecture

Lecture about the latest research on how children’s social and emotional learning and development can be nurtured in classrooms.

The public is invited to a free talk Nov. 21 to be given by internationally-renowned psychologist and educator Kimberly Schonert-Reichl.

Schonert-Reichl will speak about the latest research on how children’s social and emotional learning and development can be nurtured in classrooms. She will focus on recent work in the field of mindfulness-based education approaches.

The discussion includes a description of MindUP—a mindfulness-based education program for children in kindergarten to Grade 8 that is being widely implemented across B.C.

Schonert-Reichl is an award-winning teacher and has been internationally recognized for her collaborative work translating research into practice.

In 2006, Schonert-Reichl chaired a dialogue between the Dalai Lama and leading educators, researchers, and policy makers on the themes of cultivating compassion and educating the heart.

Schonert-Reichl’s lecture will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Engineering, Management and Education building lecture theatre, on the UBCO campus, 1137 Alumni Dr.
