Mindfulness Meditation in the Classroom
Dr. Catherine Crooks has practiced and taught mindfulness meditation for over fifteen years. Through discussion and practice, this workshop will focus on the benefits of mindfulness meditation, such as improving memory and attention and reducing stress and test anxiety. Dr. Crooks will also guide participants in a mindfulness meditation session.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.
If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.
If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free so send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
