Student Empowerment Through SEL in Music Education: Embodying & Modeling SEL for Music Educators
Many students form meaningful developmental relationships with music educators over time.
 As a result of these important connections, music educators can have a lasting impact upon students by becoming intentional about modeling social emotional learning (SEL) and self-care. This episode will explore ways that SEL contributes to positive climate and culture, along with steps educators can take to boldly embody SEL in the classroom, demonstrate artistic-SEL throughout their teaching practices, and advocate for SEL as an important aspect of music education.

The STUDENT EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SEL IN MUSIC EDUCATION: A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING WEBINAR SERIES is presented by Save The Music Foundation and the Center for Arts Education and Social Emotional Learning (ArtsEdSEL).

Feb 9, 2022 07:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
