What skills and competencies do teachers and students need to flourish in a complex, interconnected world? When teachers provide opportunities to practice and model the skills of mindfulness, positive psychology and social-emotional learning (SEL), they are better able to respond to their own needs and the needs of their students.
- Investigate research related to SEL and learn how to apply practical strategies that assist students and teachers in cultivating greater emotional well-being, perseverance, self-regulation, self-motivation and resilience.
- Create environments that support authentic, mindful and caring communities of learning.
- Develop practical approaches and learn how affective skills can be integrated into the teaching and learning experience to lead to positive, meaningful action and student agency.
