  • Teaching

    At the PPLE college Lela coordinates and teaches two large courses; Research Lab - dedicated to interdisciplinary research methodology, and Interdisciplinary Seminars IV: Societal Challenges. After ten years of working in the field of new media and technologies, Lela decided to direct her efforts solely to being an educator. Their genuine interest lies in contributing to academic teaching with a particular commitment: 

    • to increase the first-person inquiry in higher education,
    • to foster students' metacognitive skills,
    • to validate assessment forms for reflection and self-reflexivity,
    • to develop experiential learning activities,
    • to bridge contemplative practices and academic learning.

    To this end, they have designed and continue to work on developing learning activities that employ experiential learning, embodiment, and contemplative practices to enrich the learning process.
