Research from various fields demonstrates resounding evidence that Social Emotional Learning (SEL) can have positive short-term and long-term impacts on various aspects of young people’s lives. From improved academic performance and behavior to better lifetime outcomes, SEL can be a critical factor in supporting children and youth.

Utilizing the framework from the Center for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), this course will teach you to assess your own social emotional competencies, promote promising practices to support these critical competencies within your youth programs, and explore lifelong benefits for personal and professional well-being and success.

Investing in the development of your emotional intelligence (EQ) can help you become more fluent in understanding emotions and creating a culture where young people and staff feel valued, respected, and empowered to collaborate.

By the end of the course learners will:

  • Understand Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and CASEL’s Social Emotional Learning (SEL) framework
  • Assess SEL Competencies to identify strengths and growth opportunities
  • Explore how SEL benefits personal and professional success
  • Develop an action plan to integrate SEL into their day-to-day practice
  • Consider social and emotional learning factors as they develop after-school and out-of-school learning opportunities for youth

Course Description: This four-week course will include two interactive online sessions:

  • February 11, 2021 (12 pm Pacific Time/ 1 pm Mountain Time/ 2 pm Central Time/ 3 pm Eastern Time) (75 minutes)
  • February 25, 2021 (12 pm Pacific Time/ 1 pm Mountain Time/ 2 pm Central Time/ 3 pm Eastern Time) (75 minutes)

Please make every effort to ensure that you are able to attend these two meetings before enrolling in the course. If this is not possible, archived recordings will be made available.

In addition to the scheduled sessions, the instructors will provide resources and guidance that will help you build a foundational understanding of this important topic. During the course, you will participate in discussion forums, with an opportunity to share your experiences and questions, alongside fellow learners. Through assignments, you will apply the concepts to your own library and community.
