CASEL first introduced the term “social and emotional learning” (SEL) 26 years ago. Since then, SEL has evolved and is now thought of as an integral part of education and development. Our collective understanding of the why, what, and how of SEL continues to grow. Whether you are new to SEL or well-acquainted with the term, join us as we share evolving insights around CASEL’s well-recognized “wheel” and definition of SEL.

Participants will gain clarity about how SEL promotes inclusive learning environments in support of educational equity and excellence – based on a deep review of current research, practices, and policies. CASEL’s vice presidents of Research and Practice will share an updated definition and framework for SEL, including enhanced descriptions of the five core social and emotional competencies, key settings school-family-community partnerships, and our theory of action for effective implementation.
