Transforming Instruction & Curriculum
A study of two selected Buddhist traditions as they have been applied to instruction and curriculum at Naropa University. The Five Qualities are a Tibetan perspective on learning styles and environmental design. The Ten Aspects of Knowledge emerged from the curriculum of Nalanda, the renowned ancient Indian university. The intention is to understand and apply basic contemplative principles and practices to the transformation of the students’ own classrooms. An essential element is the personal transformation of the teacher derived from the practices of mindfulness, loving-kindness, and space awareness. Students who are not matriculated in the MA program must receive permission of the instructor to register.
