Considering InterPlay Applications in University Classrooms
Caroline Kisiel and Cynthia Winton-Henry

Online, ONLINE

November 16, 3pm PST

Dr. Caroline Kisiel is an Assistant Professor in DePaul University’s School for New Learning ( where she works with both undergraduate and graduate adult learners returning to school to seek or finish degrees. She has twenty-three years of experience as an InterPlayer and twenty years of experience teaching adults in higher education. Though her primary focus has been working with adult learners in university settings, this presentation has applications to other formal classroom settings, especially in colleges and universities.

Though most students in a formal classroom setting have been taught head and brain-centered ways of learning and how to “focus” on information, using the InterPlay practice Caroline teaches a whole body approach to information, the value of releasing the excess or unneeded through “exformation” and how “easy focus” learning can be just as valuable as focused learning. Dr. Caroline Kisiel will share approaches from the InterPlay practice and system she has applied in a variety of university classroom settings, which she has found relevant for twenty-first century learners, particularly adults returning to school. This presentation is applicable to anyone with life and work anxieties, challenging experiences with grading and authority, or in formal degree programs who face expectations that can translate into judgment and issues of self worth and identity. Including the wisdom of the body is possible to create ease-filled, successful learning.

In addition to the video recording, participants will receive a list of resources Dr. Kisiel has found useful.
