Educators from URSTRONG Schools are invited to attend this professional learning course to get training in URSTRONG’s award-winning curriculum, Friendology 101, directly from our Founder, Dana Kerford.
Dana will share how URSTRONG is enhancing the social-emotional wellbeing of children through friendship skills. Educators will learn URSTRONG’s language, skills, and strategies along with the research supporting SEL (social-emotional learning) and evidence behind URSTRONG’s impact in schools globally.
The first live class will take place on Monday 18 October from 4.00pm to 5.30pm (AEDT, Sydney/Melbourne). Video sessions along with follow-up activities will be assigned that focus on the following topics:
- The Science of Friendships – exploring the science behind social-emotional wellbeing and why friendship skills must be prioritized in schools.
- The Language of Friendship – a detailed overview of URSTRONG’s core concepts, including the language and skills that are central to our whole-school friendship strategy.
- Friendology 101 – showing educators how to utilise our curriculum, Friendology 101, as a school-wide friendship framework. Educators will learn how to access the curriculum online, along with hundreds of lesson plans to enhance students’ friendship skills.
- Transforming into a URSTRONG School – guiding educators to craft an implementation plan, plus review the supporting documents available to URSTRONG Schools.
Educators will also be invited to a final live class (date TBD) – a special wrap-up session and an opportunity to ask questions + connect with other educators, ensuring everyone is ready to go!
