Social emotional learning research initiative receives SSHRC grant

The Okanagan School of Education is pleased to share that Dr. John-Tyler Binfet has received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grant.

Dr. Binfet and his collaborators, Central Okanagan Public Schools’ Alan Lalonde and Sherri McKinnon, were awarded $24,994 for their project: Advancing and Enriching Social and Emotional Instruction in the Central Okanagan Public School District.  

The aim of the research is to enhance the teaching of social emotional learning (SEL) within school district 23 and to ensure consistency around the opportunities for students to practice and develop their social and emotional competencies.  The team will work together to co-create a series of SEL training modules to fortify teachers’ foundation knowledge and ability to create SEL-rich learning opportunities for students.

Congratulations to Dr. Binfet and his collaborators!
