Social-emotional learning (SEL) has gained significant prominence in education in recent years. But what does it mean, why is it important, and how do you incorporate it into education?

In a cozy and informal setting, this interactive and informative session will be hosted by Mr. Jasper C. Kok, managing director of the school board OPO Hof van Twente in the Netherlands. Together, we will explore how to create a more holistic and nurturing language-learning environment, where SEL and well-being are integrated seamlessly into instruction and assessment practices, with English language teaching as the main example. 

We will delve into the significance of differentiating language instruction to cater to diverse learning needs, thereby creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment. We will also look into how assessments can be transformed from mere evaluation tools to instruments that reflect and promote SEL competencies. 

Join us to gain valuable insights, innovative strategies, and a deeper understanding of how to foster SEL through language teaching and learning, and work on your own well-being afterwards! 

The session runs from 14:00 - 18:00 in a cozy venue, with sauna facilities, in the heart of Helsinki. For a shorter version, you can also walk in at 15:30, when we will start the second round of the workshop.
