Tong Por Moses KOH, Singapore Management University

Abstract

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest among researchers to investigate the efficacy of mindfulness within the educational sector. However, the majority of existing studies have focused on intrapersonal effects, such as the benefits of mindfulness interventions experienced by specific student or teacher samples. Set within a tertiary institution in Singapore, the present research examines the relations of teachers’ trait and state mindfulness with classroom and student outcomes as well as the potential mediating mechanisms.
