Presenter: Dr. Christina Cipriano, Assistant Professor at the Yale Child Study Center and Director of Research at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence

Emotions matter for all learners and all the adults who educate them. Social and emotional learning, or SEL, can benefit all members of a school community, supporting greater student engagement, social-emotional and behavioral health, and academic achievement in addition to increased engagement and well-being among educators, education support professionals, school leaders, and families. What have we learned from high-quality SEL implementation that can support educators and students to navigate teaching and learning now? And what have we learned from the disproportionate experiences of this pandemic in underserved and marginalized communities to evolve SEL for the meaningful inclusion of all learners and educators? In this session, Dr Cipriano will provide a brief history of SEL and identify what we know and don’t about SEL, discuss examples of how SEL research and practice are being applied to support wellness and effective learning environments for students and their teachers, and identify opportunities for SEL to support the anticipated needs of schools toward the promotion of school community wellness hereafter

Educators who register for and attend all 8 sessions in the series will earn one free teacher license renewal credit! Register here for the credit.
