“We Shall Not Cease from Exploration”
Anticipating the Journey to Graduation
Keywords:contemplative pedagogy, reflective practice
This ‘on the horizon’ piece outlines a mindful journaling activity which expresses the principles of contemplative pedagogy, making use of the hall which is used for university graduations. The space and time given to reflection was adventitious and unusual but, embedded more deeply in practice, could be a key feature of a compassionate university. The process of organising and leading the activity is described and evaluated.
