Netzwerk Achtsame Pädagogik (NAP)

The Austrian Network for Mindful Pedagogy is part of the project ALBUS. Besides sending out our newsletter eight times per year, we organize a Jour fixe at the University of Vienna every month and welcome you to take part in a day-long retreat at the beginning of every school year.

Jours fixes

Our three-hour-long Jours fixes combine the following elements: 

  • Short presentations:
    Members of our network and external experts inform about current topics/projects and discuss these with us – see also program of our upcoming Jour fixe (German only) and program of past Jours fixes (German only). 
  • Marketplace for ideas and opportunities for cooperation:
    Participants give account of their projects and plans, exchange ideas and explore possibilities for cooperation.
  • Further discussions:
    We focus on content-related questions, discuss definitions and understandings, and explore the basis for a dynamic consent. 
  • Mindfulness practice
    We begin every session with a mindfulness practice and explore special guided mindfulness practices.

out of these Jours fixes various big projects, final theses’ and cooperations have arisen, as for example, the Master’s degree program Mindfulness in Education, Counseling and Health Care.
