Vision and Mission

Vision

The centre aims to be a change agent in relation to innovation in education, developing concepts that are integrative of mind and body, and provide platforms for creative mindful interaction between self, others and the environment.

The centre will develop meaningful frameworks for educating learners and provide learners with tools to engage mindfully and compassionately through an awareness of multiple perspectives and development of empathy and imagination.

Immersion is the interaction between the learner and the environment engaging all senses in an integrative mind/body experience.

The centre will scientifically explore and develop designs for immersive and mindful education and provide a basis for the evaluation of immersive, creative and mindful learning. 

Mission


The concept of mindful awareness and creative learning draws on values of self-expression, empowerment, freedom and development of the human potential. It is, therefore, a natural mission for the centre to develop designs and concepts for immersive, mindful and creative learning and to explore and provide scientific validation that enables the integration of these concepts into formal as well as informal education, and into the culture and values of society.
 

Objective


To develop concepts for meaningful learning experiences and explore the mind-sets, environments, artefacts and technologies that enhances immersion, creative learning and mindful awareness.
To investigate playful, creative and embodied learning in hybrid and physical learning environments.
