Resources: Faculty Spotlight with Claire Donato

Thank you to Claire Donato (Adjunct Associate Professor, Writing Program; and Recipient of the 2020-2021 Distinguished Teacher Award) for sharing her classroom practices with us at the Faculty Spotlight on April 5, 2022.


Below we’ve included the slides from the presentation, in which Claire Donato shared with us the pedagogical significance of deep listening and the implementation of periods of shared silence in her Poetry & Psychoanalysis and The Oceanic Feeling courses. This conversation was additionally informed by Donato’s ongoing Zen meditation practice, and input from several of her students.

Donato discusses the zines made by her classes during the presentation. Please explore the Oceanic Feeling zine, Spring 2021, and Small Worlds, Miniature Forms zine, Fall 2021.
