Afterschool Webinar: Creating the Conditions for Social and Emotional Learning

Feb 3, 2016

About this webinar:

By now, many of us have heard of the critical importance of developing social and emotional skills in young people, but it is often difficult to connect frameworks and research to the everyday practices that help foster skill building in afterschool. In this webinar, we will focus on bridging the gap between research and practical applications of social and emotional learning practices that support skill building.

Deb Moroney and Jaime Singer from American Institutes for Research (AIR) will join us to talk about their resources that support the application of best practices in social and emotional learning in afterschool. AIR is a leader in the field of nurturing social and emotional development through quality summer, afterschool, and expanded learning programs.

AIR released a series of briefs and related tools in 2015 that focus on connecting research to action. To accompany the first brief, AIR created Social and Emotional Learning Practices: A Self-Reflection Tool for Afterschool Staff.

Stacey Dario, from Temescal Associates, will be joining the discussion to talk about how the Expanded Learning 360/365 group, in collaboration with the California School-Age Consortium, is using AIR's Self-Reflection Tool for building quality in afterschool systems throughout California.

Come prepared to learn how Research + Action is moving the afterschool field toward ensuring all participants have opportunities for skill building and positive development. Click here to register.
