Social-Emotional Learning Courses


Join NEA Teacher Quality for the Fall Social-Emotional Learning Courses

Registration closes Sept. 10

Courses run six weeks Sept. 20-Oct. 29, 2021

Social-emotional learning (SEL) should be a priority at any time, and even more so during a crisis. The challenges and stresses that educators have faced after a tumultuous year of remote and/or hybrid learning are unparalleled. That’s why NEA is giving its members an opportunity to re-energize and enroll in blended SEL courses to learn the importance of attending to their and their students’ social and emotional needs.

NEA’s SEL courses offer a powerful means to explore and express our emotions, build relationships, and support
each other – students and educators alike

Choose from five facilitated blended learning SEL courses:

SEL: Self-Awareness
Learn how to accurately recognize emotions, thoughts, and values to accurately assess one’s strengths and limitations, with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a “growth mindset.”

SEL: Relationship-Skills
Learn how to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups to communicate clearly, listen well, cooperate with others, and to seek and offer help when needed.

SEL: Social-Awareness
Learn how to take the perspective of and empathize with others to understand social and ethical norms for behavior and to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports.

SEL: Self-Management
Learn how to regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations to set and work toward personal and academic goals.

SEL: Responsible Decision-Making
Learn how to make constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on ethical standards, safety concerns, and social norms.


* Social-Emotional Learning fall courses will be facilitated by NEA-trained blended learning facilitators—and all SEL courses provide a certificate for 15-hours of professional development upon completion.

Enrollment closes Sept. 10 for the fall session (running September 20 - October 29, 2021)

You must be an NEA member in order to participate in these national blended learning courses.
