Transforming Teacher Practice – The Promise of Summer Learning for Job-Embedded SEL Development

Transforming Teacher Practice – The Promise of Summer Learning for Job-Embedded SEL Development - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 @ 1pm

Presenters: Christine Baine, Senior Manager Professional Development & Quality and Bryan Hall, Senior Director, Evaluation, BellXcel

Description: Research demonstrates that adults learn best when able to test and apply new strategies in real-world environments. Summer affords teachers the opportunity to engage in concrete experiences, try out new approaches and techniques, and reflect with peers to develop insights into what works (The Aspen Institute, 2018; Schonert-Reichl, 2017). A recent study suggests that BellXcel Summer educators believe that the professional learning they engage in as part of BellXcel Summer is influencing their confidence and attitudes toward the school year, and their practice in key areas such as growth mindset and promoting positive behavior (Bellwether Education Partners, 2018). In this webinar, we’ll explore how best to leverage summer environments to advance teacher development and SEL skills, as these results suggest that summer may be under-utilized as a learning lab for educators.
