In response to Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) needs of CT teachers and students and the demands of a state mandate, colleagues from local schools and agencies joined university faculty from all levels of Teacher Education, Special Education, HHP, Counselor Education, plus Marriage & Family Therapy & Social Work licensure programs to co-construct a set of SEL-related content learning modules. Creative collaboration with instructional design colleagues transformed the information, case studies, video clips, reflective activities, and other materials into an integrated, interactive, and engaging course anchored by a Virtual Social-Emotional Academy to be accessed on-line as self-paced learning or as supplemental material within a variety of teacher education program courses.
Presenters will share examples from the digitally-enhanced course, describe the multi-disciplinary design process, identify lessons learned, and propose next steps.
