STEM and SEL: A Perfect Match

Thu, Jun 14, 2018 · 11:00 AM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) are both getting a lot of attention lately, but it is only recently that the two crop up in the same article, much less the same sentence. In recent research conducted at Google, STEM skills were eighth on the list of skills that predicted success at the technology giant, preceded by skills most articles called "soft skills." These “soft skills” included “possessing insights into others” and “having empathy,” skills commonly considered the province of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).

In this Webinar, we will explore the driving forces behind the push for STEM and SEL, the relationship between SEL and STEM, and the underlying skills that support both. We hope to show that, far from being disconnected, the two are, indeed, a perfect match.

Featured Presenters
Webinar hosting presenter Betsy Hill
Betsy Hill is an experienced educator and President of BrainWare Learning Company. She has studied the application of neuroscience to teaching and learning with Dr. Patricia Wolfe and other experts and works with educators, clinicians and corporate trainers on using neuroscience research to address some of the most perplexing problems in education, including closing the gap for historically underperforming students. She addressed issues of college and career preparedness as a trustee and board chair at Chicago State University. She holds a Master of Arts in Teaching and an MBA from Northwestern University, and teaches strategy at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management and the University of Illinois Chicago.

I like to describe myself as a "recovering" educator, but the truth is that I am more excited than ever about what neuroscience is uncovering about the brain and how we can use that information to enable each individual to reach his or her cognitive potential. I'm here to share what I've been learning over the last ten years and to continue learning from others in this amazing and fast developing field.
