An in-person, 10-month course offered in Chicago, the Social-Emotional Learning Certification shows participants how to be leaders in SEL in their own schools. With self-care and community-building activities, each participant becomes a field researcher in his or her classroom. Clock hours with Illinois State Board of Education and Lane Credits for Chicago Public School employees are included, and three graduate level credit-hours are available through Roosevelt University. The SEL Certification runs September through June.
SEL Online Course
Mindful Practices and Roosevelt University are proud to offer a graduate-level one credit-hour online course. This ten-week course will focus on self-care and community building in the classroom with assigned readings, videos and online discussions. Participants will use Blackboard to submit videos of themselves teaching some yoga or team-building strategies… this is active learning! To enroll, you will have to register with Roosevelt University by early March 2018. https://www.roosevelt.edu/current-students/academics/important-dates
