Course Description

Social-emotional learning (SEL) helps students develop the skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. SEL involves teaching students to recognize and manage their emotions, build positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and communicate effectively. By incorporating SEL into daily instruction, teachers can create a safe and supportive learning environment that fosters social, emotional, and academic growth. SEL can also help students develop resilience, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being. By investing in SEL, teachers can help students develop the skills they need to succeed not only academically, but also build healthy relationships, and navigate challenges throughout their lives. 

This course is designed to equip educators with the knowledge, skills, and strategies to effectively promote social and emotional learning in their classrooms. Participants will gain a deep understanding of the core SEL competencies, explore evidence-based instructional techniques, and learn to create a safe and inclusive classroom environment. Additionally, educators will gain self-care strategies to support their own social and emotional well-being, enabling them to thrive personally and professionally. This course will empower educators to create a positive and transformative learning experience for themselves and their students.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Evaluate the academic and mental health benefits of incorporating SEL into teaching practices and the classroom.
  • Identify the five core competencies of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and describe the essential skills that support students’ social, emotional, and academic success.
  • Develop strategies to integrate SEL practices into teaching practices to support students’ social and emotional growth.
  • Analyze the importance of supporting adult SEL and its impact on professional performance and student learning outcomes.
  • Design self-care practices to model social and emotional well being.
