Welcome to Introduction to Social and Emotional Leanring (SEL) designed to support teachers, administrators and school staff on what SEL is, its importance, and how to implement and integrate SEL into their respective contexts in a culturally responsive way. Participants will engage in a variety of readings, interactive activities, videos, reflection, and action planning asynchronously.
Although the learning activities within the course can be accomplished alone, we encourage teams (e.g. grade-level teams, department teams, school leadership teams, professional learning communities) to take the course together, particularly because of the nature of SEL being something we inherently must understand in relation to others. If you use this course within a team, you can pause and discuss the material that is relevant to your setting as it comes up. This approach allows you to maximize the online content while simultaneously applying new knowledge. Nonetheless, individuals can successfully complete this course on their own at their pace.
Intended Audience: Grade K-12 Teachers, Administrators, Coaches, Support Staff
