Khipra Nichols, Associate Professor, Industrial Design, was among six ACP Davis Fellows, who each spent eight months in AY 2013–14 developing a research question, designing inquiries, applying them in their spring courses, and assessing student learning outcomes. Khipra’s project had two intersecting layers. He researched the effects of contemplative practice on his own students’ work and design process, and his students researched the effects of contemplative practice on the learning experience and creativity of middle-school students.
