Developing Social and Emotional Skills in Our Schools

Posted on September 14, 2017

WHEN
Friday, November 17, 2017
8:45 AM – 3:30 PM

WHERE
Arthur Lewis Auditorium
Robertson Hall
Princeton University

 

In the past few years, research has increasingly suggested that social and emotional learning (SEL) matters a great deal for important life outcomes like success in school, college entry and completion, and later earnings. In addition to this, research also tells us that SEL can be taught and nurtured in schools so that students increase their ability to integrate thinking, emotions and behaviors that lead to positive school and life outcomes. This conference is designed to bridge research and practice by addressing the research related to SEL and schools and by highlighting programs in the field related to enhancing SEL in schools.

Throughout the day, panelists will address the research related to the importance of SEL. Topics such as SEL preservice and professional development for teachers and administrators will be discussed. Decision making guides about how schools can pick the appropriate SEL approach will be explored.

This conference is organized by the Education Research Section (ERS) and co-sponsored with the Future of Children Journal and the Teacher Preparation Program at Princeton University.

This event is free, but requires registration.

Please RSVP by Thursday, November 9, 2017.
