Social emotional learning in schools

Social emotional learning is getting a lot of attention due to the emphasis in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), but what is social emotional learning (SEL) and how can schools make sure this type of learning is being addressed? Attend this course and get answers to these questions and more. Participants will learn techniques and strategies for promoting a healthy and vibrant culture for all students.

You’ll meet online once a week to cover SEL-related topics, and participants will also be provided pertinent reading materials and video lectures. In the end, educators will come away with a deeper understanding of how to address the SEL needs of the diverse populations they serve.
