Dr. Colin Ackerman

Experienced researcher, teacher, and evaluator

Dr. Ackerman is obsessed with exploring practical ways to innovate and integrate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into K12 education. Connecting research- and evidence-based principles to feasible instructional practice drives his passion for this work.

Before shifting into independent consulting, Colin was a researcher at the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL). Much of his work at CASEL contributed to developing the concept of transformative SEL (SEL in service of equity). He worked on the Research- Practice Partnership team, contributing to and leading co-created research projects with education practitioners and policymakers at the school, district, and state levels. Additionally, Colin worked on CASEL’s Program Guide team, thoroughly reviewing submitted SEL curricula and determining if they meet the rigorous standards for

evidence of effectiveness and design for inclusion in CASEL’s Guide for Effective Social Emotional Learning Programs.

Workshop Description:

Dive deep into the research and practices that make SEL one of the most talked about concepts in PreK-12 education. This workshop is a scan of SEL’s past, present and future. You will learn about the current definition of SEL & its key components, evidenced-based SEL programs, Adult SEL, the link between

emotions,cognition and academics, and what SEL might look like moving forward in the 21st Century. All of these concepts will be grounded through the lens of systemic SEL implementation and give participants a strong understanding of what SEL is, how it's practiced, why it works, and its important role in creating equitable learning environments.

Desired Outcomes:

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:

  • Define SEL and its key components through established frameworks Understand what makes an SEL program ‘evidence-based’ and why that is important.
  • Conceptualize the important role adults play in the success of SEL implementation.
  • Connect current understandings about cognition and emotion to successful SEL implementation and its impact on student growth and achievement.
  • Gain foundational knowledge regarding the practical implementation of SEL that can promote equitable student outcomes.
  • Direct Relationship to Student Achievement and Student Outcomes:

This workshop is strategically designed to directly enhance student achievement and outcomes by:

  • Providing all PreK-12 educators with the knowledge needed to implement systemic SEL supported by evidence-based practices Equipping educators with practical strategies that have been scientifically shown to drive positive student outcomes, including academic achievement, more pro-social behaviors, and a greater sense of belonging.
  • Empowering students with essential social and emotional competencies crucial for success in academics, relationships, and life beyond the classroom.
  • Promoting SEL as a lever for creating equitable learning environments, leading to equitable outcomes.

Target Audience:

Tailored for all PreK-12 educators seeking to advance their professional expertise, this workshop is applicable to all grade levels and content area settings and honors equity, subgroup support, and differentiation to ensure every learner receives comprehensive support.
