Social-Emotional Learning and Performance
Presented by Dr. Marcus Crede, who has spent the past 15 years investigating the relationship between social-emotional learning constructs and academic outcomes, this session will focus on how educators can move beyond the hype that often characterizes claims made about social-emotional learning. Attendees will discover a more nuanced and evidence-based understanding of how social-emotional learning contributes to learning and achievement. Dr. Crede will also offer suggestions that educators can use when interpreting results produced by ERB's new social-emotional program, the Social and Emotional Learning Suite (SEL).
