SEE Learning Courses

The Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics offers different course options for preparing educators to bring SEE Learning to their students and classrooms, starting with the free self-directed course SEE 101.

SEE 101 results in a certificate authorizing an individual educator to use and teach SEE Learning resources in their individual classroom.

If your school or organization wishes to implement SEE Learning more broadly, such as in multiple classes or to bring SEE Learning to other schools and settings, we ask that you contact Emory University or an official SEE Learning affiliate in your country to engage in supported SEE Learning. See below for a list of these offerings

SEE 101 is the first step on your journey towards bringing Social, Emotional, and Ethical Learning to the youths you serve. This orientation course is designed to give you an introduction to the SEE Learning program. SEE 101 is organized into 7 modules. Each module introduces key components that will be important for the implementation of the SEE Learning curriculum into your educational setting.

The 7 modules include:

  1. Introduction: Welcome to SEE 101
  2. Empowering Students
  3. Exploring Awareness, Compassion, and Engagement
  4. Understanding the Curriculum
  5. Fostering Capabilities within Students
  6. Fostering Capabilities within Yourself
  7. Conclusion: Embarking on the SEE Learning Journey
