If you have a question about this talk, please contact Araceli Hopkins.

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a dominant orthodoxy in education systems around the world. To many it is a panacea. To others it is a waste of time and resources. This seminar will provide an in-depth and balanced examination of the critical issues pervading the field. Each substantive aspect of SEL - definitions and conceptualization, origins and influences, international policy and practice, assessment and monitoring, implementation and outcomes – will be examined through a critical lens. I will highlight key strengths and significant flaws in SEL theory and research, and consider the priorities for the next generation of inquiry in the field. I hope the talk will be of interest to anyone concerned with the role played by schools in promoting children’s social and emotional wellbeing.
