The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning Announces a FREE SEL Course
CASEL is meeting that need with a new one-hour, virtual learning course: An Introduction to Social and Emotional Learning. The free experience is designed to make SEL information accessible to anyone—from educators and school staff to parents and community partners.
The course can be taken independently online or used with a facilitation guide for SEL leaders who want to engage a group in-person. The self-paced course pairs informative learning activities with opportunities for participants to make connections to their local communities and imagine ways they can (and already do) apply their social and emotional skills to support young people.
“With mounting public interest in social and emotional learning, there is an urgent need for trustworthy information that everyone can access,” said CASEL Vice President of Innovations and Partnerships Melissa Schlinger. “Our new course is a credible, user-friendly on-ramp to SEL, regardless of your role in the school community. We’re proud to offer this foundational learning as people around the world turn to CASEL for support.”
