Global trends point us towards probable outcomes and challenge us to create a world built in ways that deepen agency, belonging and creativity in our schools. Building from the field of social-emotional learning (SEL), with its decades of evidence linked to impact on learning and life outcomes, you will discover how to go further towards human-centred practices in your school that integrate learning with wellbeing. This program is structured to assist school guiding coalitions (teams) to review or develop an authentic future-focused social emotional learning (SEL) approach based on research-informed practices.
The 3 x 2-hour workshop sessions include:
- Discover - an understanding of your community's strengths and needs
- Design - a roadmap of vision, strategy, and tactics to shift mental models and behaviour
- Deliver - share your prototyped SEL-informed approach and learning to create the future
- Follow up coaching support for each school
To register your school team, please complete this expression of interest form:
- deeper understanding of the strategies and tools for SEL implementation in your school
- application of SEL practice roadmaps and strategies to shift mental models and behaviours
- collective sharing of SEL learning from the process
- collaboration and connection with a network of colleagues
