SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)

COURSE INFORMATION

Social emotional learning (SEL in advance) course is aimed for teachers of all levels. The course provides innovative and engaging tools to integrate social emotional learning in the school and more specifically in the classroom. By teaching the mind and encouraging the heart—in each other, as well as in our students—we can be successful. You will learn the details and processes that will empower you to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

 

You will be prepared to implement a wide range of social-emotional and character-based activities to your students, and you will also be joining others whose collective experience, wisdom, creativity, and problem-solving skills toward a shared goal will make each of us and all of us better. We are all instructors in the service of improving the lives and futures of all children. Besides, ou will look at a variety of instructional strategies and technology tools to support SEL in your classroom and school, and you will learn to assess your students’ progress in their experiences. In addition, you will explore some great learning ideas that have already been put into practice!

 

According with the 21st century skills, the course includes a variety of strategies to work on: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making. During the development of the course, we will work in collaboration to do several practical activities that will be very useful to carry out to your schools.

 

The main task of this course is to develop a variety of practical projects or activities, whereas lectures serve as a source of information and discussion panel to provide the necessary information and tools. The material that is going to be used in the lessons has been improved and adapted to be taught in different languages, environments and educational systems. Besides, the training will include cultural activities and networking where the participants will have the chance to experience the country and make partnerships for their future projects with students or for Job Shadowings or even KA2 connections. Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English.

METHODOLOGY

SEL will have daily motivation activities, brainstorming, working in pairs and groups, simulations and networking, not only in the classroom but also in outdoor activities. The course has been structured on practical, funny and very motivated activities, so that participants can put in action the acquired knowledge.

 

The methodology will transform every teacher in the guide of his or her students’ social emotional learning. The course will have every day assignment support and feedback. In addition, participants will work, create and share a huge amount of documents as course material to implement this subject and to have fun with their pupils doing activities indoor and outdoor in classroom.

 

Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants.
