Events Details

This 24-hour stand-alone professional learning course aims to empower educators to Read,Feel and Serve. Specifically, it aims to build the capacity of teachers to facilitate the introduction of social and emotional learning (SEL) competencies in the classroom with the aid of authentic, high-quality multicultural picturebooks (MPB). As Singapore is increasingly becoming even more multicultural with the influx of people coming from various parts of the globe, the Ministry of Education calls for the importance of instilling soft-skills to the Singapore youth. Apart from being viewed as a cognitive tool, MPB will be used to facilitate soft-skills training as seen in social and emotional understanding and competencies. It is hoped that through this PD workshop, teachers can have more concrete tools to build a more inclusive community that regards diversity as a lived and felt reality through the use of MPB.
