HHE5181 Embodied Learning: A Toolbox for Educators and Coaches

Course Description

This course is for educators (including teachers, trainers, health educators, etc.) and coaches who wish to develop their capacity to work with students and clients in an embodied way. Drawing upon the concepts and practices of experiential learning, transformational learning, and somatic awareness, we will explore the theories and practices that will enable us to develop our capacities as educators and coaches to be fully present in the learning or coaching relationship. We will investigate how we can facilitate the experience of embodiment and the integration of embodied experience for sustainable learning and transformation. This course will be highly experiential, and students will be expected to participate in and lead frequent somatic experiential exercises.
