IFSEL's Institutes builds on evidence based SEL practices and fosters collaboration, reflection and renewal.

The Institute provides participants with inspiration and current research as well as experiential lesson materials. Throughout our time together, IFSEL’s facilitators will demonstrate a unique take on ten distinct educator practices that expand social and emotional learning, inclusivity, and well-being.

Our SEL Institutes:

  • Share core principles and practices for equity-rooted SEL in K-12 schools
  • Offer experiential practices that spark creativity and renew inspiration for teaching
  • Help educators cultivate their teaching practices so that a strong sense of humanity and empathy inspires their students to evolve into compassionate leaders and resilient learners
  • Provide a space for educators to reconnect with joy and purpose through reflection, play and engagement with peers
  • Explore skills, mindsets and heartsets to nurture community-wide SEL
  • Strengthen the capacity of educators to bring SEL to classrooms, curricula, and systems to transform schools into more inclusive and caring communities

More detailed information can be found on our website.
