Creating a Professional Learning Culture Based on SEL (Session 3)

In this session, we will be exploring how adults in education can begin to understand and recognize self-awareness related to implicit bias and social awareness to better understand the perspectives of others.

Through a review of transformative SEL, we will continue deepening our understanding of the CASEL Core Competencies to promote and leverage equity and promote personal growth. This deepening awareness contributes to healthier culture and climate of schools, and the overall professional learning community.

Modes of Learning

This unit is meant to be facilitated within a group setting either in person or remote over a three-hour time period. However, facilitators may decide to break it up into multiple sessions to meet the needs of your audience (such as one-hour sessions, each covering one of the three objectives of the training). 

This is the third unit of a six-part e-learning series with each three-hour unit being delivered in synchronous sessions.
