“The Heart of Learning and Teaching: Compassion, Resiliency, and Academic Success”
This training tool has been designed to allow individuals to intensively study the manual that was written in 2009 entitled, “The Heart of Learning and Teaching: Compassion, Resiliency, and Academic Success.” This tool may also be used by individuals who wish to train others on the content of this manual.
Below, you will find both a PowerPoint presentation and accompanying script for each of the first four chapters of this manual. The fifth PowerPoint is a series of vignettes and a complementary script that allows participants to put into practice the information learned in the first four chapters.
