Turning The Contemplative ‘Good Eye’ to Lesson Creation and Evaluation
The “Good Eye” is Miksang, a contemplative photography practice to see clearly and discover key points of focus within a panorama of often oversaturated input. Finding such focus in text and lecture is a critical skill in teaching students whose experience is also oversaturated. Examining the Miksang process and adapting it to a pedagogical model can encourage contemplation and create lessons with clarity and staying power. Similarly, evaluating students at the kernel of their understanding can enable compassion, praise and renewed purpose. This visual presentation will segue to specific examples of lessons and evaluation in a literature class.
