9/13 Webinar: Moving forward with social-emotional learning: Practical strategies and reflections for English teachers

Session Description: In this presentation, we introduce social-emotional learning (SEL) in the context of English language teaching (ELT), explain our position for embracing and promoting SEL as a vital practice and pedagogy in ELT, and share practical examples of SEL that English language educators can use in their learning spaces to support learners. Throughout the webinar, we will offer spaces and opportunities for reflections and conversations about how to successfully incorporate SEL, and how to envision ELT through an SEL lens. By the end of this webinar, participants will have an understanding of what SEL is, why include it in our practice and pedagogies, and approaches to including SEL in ELT.
