New! Social-Emotional Learning Graduate Course Now Available Through Drake University

Diversity of children students wearing medical masks in the classroom.Together with Drake University, we are pleased to announce that the graduate course Social-Emotional Learning: Essential to Student Success™ is now available. This PLS course will be offered in a remote learning format, which combines online synchronous sessions with asynchronous coursework.

Social-Emotional Learning: Essential to Student Success™ focuses on the importance of supporting academics with social-emotional learning. You’ll explore the five areas of social-emotional learning: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, social awareness, and relationship skills. Classroom-applicable strategies and activities for developing a social-emotional culture, while fostering each of the social-emotional areas in students, are modeled so that you can maximize student learning and success.

Recognizing social-emotional disorders in students and implementing corresponding strategies and interventions are discussed. You will learn ways to develop character strengths in students of empathy and compassion, integrity and self-control, courage and perseverance, humility and gratitude, teamwork and communication, and curiosity and inquisitiveness.

Here’s what some students had to say about their experience:

I often find that classes focus on broad ideas, which are more or less understood pretty quickly but not the ‘how.’ This class explained the ‘how’ and the ‘why.’

I appreciated that the class gave me creative activities that I could use in my lessons plans right away.

I enjoyed the live interaction in the whole group and breakout sessions. Through live sessions and practice, I strengthened my understanding regarding the content of the course.

Social-Emotional Learning: Essential to Student Success™ will be offered at three different times during the Spring 2021 semester.
