Video Highlights: Global Experts Discuss Social and Emotional Learning and Social Justice

International educators and innovators explore social and emotional learning (SEL) and social justice through panel discussions

The COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated the need for social and emotional learning (SEL), especially when addressing educational and societal inequality. In a time of unprecedented global change, many school systems have adapted their means of delivery. Hybrid home-school learning illustrates the importance of educating not just the whole child, but also all children.

SEL is vital in developing crucial life skills such as empathy, self-regulation, and critical inquiry. In an online program of Salzburg Global Seminar’s series, Education for Tomorrow’s World, global educators and innovators analyzed SEL and Social Justice across four expert panels. They separately examined inclusive pedagogies and assessment, answering participants’ questions and sharing experiences.

Salzburg Global produced this event in partnership with ETS, Microsoft, Qatar Foundation International and Karanga. It also formed part of Karanga’s Autumn Festival of SEL.

The short highlight videos from each panel can be viewed below.
