SEL – TED Study
Research Team: Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl, Dr. Shelley Hymel, Jennifer Kitel, Jenna Whitehead, Jacqueline Davis
Project Description: This study is the first ever investigation of the extent to which social and emotional learning (SEL) is being taught to pre-service teachers enrolled in teacher preparation programs in the US and Canada.
Given recent breakthroughs in the science of social and emotional learning (SEL), it is critical now more than ever that teacher preparation programs include both the science and practice of SEL in coursework and pre-service field experiences in schools. To date, we have no knowledge of the degree to which this is occurring. The SEL T-Ed Project will provide a series of recommendations to educators, policy makers, and practitioners about strategies and tools to increase the effective and broad implementation of research-based, coordinated practices to promote SEL into teacher preparation programs.
