Caring for Your Staff: Why Supporting SEL for Educators is Important
Open Circle is excited to share news that Aperture Education will be launching their newest product, EdSERT (Educator Social-Emotional Reflection & Training) on August 1, 2019. This tool is specifically designed to support the social-emotional competence and well-being of educators. With the launch of this new tool, Apeture will be holding a webinar July 30th at 2pm EST on the importance of supporting educator SEL and also providing a sneak peek of EdSERT.
DATE: Jul 30, 2019 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
DESCRIPTION: Educators are increasingly asked to teach and model important social-emotional skills to their students. However, few teacher education programs prepare educators to deliver SEL instruction in their classrooms. Even when educators are prepared, they often experience multiple demands for their time and a variety of workplace stressors.
This webinar will:
- describe why supporting educator social-emotional competence is important
- provide strategies for supporting educator social-emotional development
- introduce participants to a new solution to help support educators' social and emotional skills
