Together We Thrive:
SEL for Educators

Tuesday, Jan 19
10:00 AM ET | 15:00 GMT


The pandemic has revealed how important it is to incorporate social and emotional learning strategies for students to cultivate a safe and welcoming learning environment. But how do we foster wellbeing for our educators? What tools and resources do they need to strengthen their resilience and combat burnout?

As we continue to navigate these unprecedented waters, it becomes clear that we need to work together now more than ever to uncover new solutions and innovate our way through this reality. 

Joshua, Ginny, and Giancarlo  invite you to join other K-12 educators in this Catalyst Session™ to engage you in authentic dialogue and to co-construct a shared output that will serve you, your school system, and the education community at large.  

This IS NOT your typical sit-and-listen webinar. Catalyst Sessions™ use a unique format whereby the majority of the time you will be in small breakout rooms with other educators engaged in dialogue and discussion…so be prepared to have your microphone and cameras on

Hang on, we knew this already!


Wednesday, Jan 20
12:00 PM ET | 17:00 GMT


2020 was, in many ways, a fork in the road for education. From policymakers to school students it was apparent that the new normal would not be the old normal.

Looking back from 2021 it's clear that all the pieces of the New Learning jigsaw were there already, and we had known about many of them for some time.

Putting those pieces together to show what learning will look like next is the focus of this keynote.

And the result is pretty exciting!

Using what we know about the Science of Learning in all classrooms


Thursday, Jan 21
1:00 PM ET | 18:00 GMT


The world continues to increase its insight into the science of how students learn.

Recent research in neuroscience, behavioral sciences, and cognitive sciences continues to add to this body of evidence, and recently published The Science of Learning Report eloquently provides a summary of key evidence about how children learn. 

As leaders of education institutions, we know that amongst the many roles we have, an important one is in helping close the gap between what the theory tells us and the behaviors and actions we observe in our classrooms.

Join this Catalyst Session™ with the creators of The Science of Learning Report, Catalyst Ambassadors, and other leaders as you together begin to explore common misconceptions in teaching and learning how these misconceptions can be unpicked and prevented in school environments.

Hybrid Learning: What's working and what's next


Monday, Jan 25
12:00 PM ET | 17:00 GMT

Join this open session focused on sharing practice and the emergence of potential pathways forward. This will be an honest discussion about the opportunities (and the challenges!) for remote and in-school teaching and learning. We’ll explore the evolving education landscape and what’s emerging as successful practice.

We’ll be exploring 2 key themes:

1.       What is hybrid learning and should it form an integral part of our education offer into the future? If so why? How? What might the benefits and barriers be?

2.       Schools of the future: How might hybrid learning change our schools, what would a curriculum look like and how could we support children’s wellbeing when they are out of school

The work is hard, but the kids are worth it! Empowering School Innovation and Student-Centered Learning


Tuesday, Jan 26
12:00 PM ET | 17:00 GMT

This school year continues to deliver uncertainty at every turn. Opening in the midst of a global pandemic and returning to lockdowns in many communities has created significant anxiety and a loss of sleep for all educators, regardless of position.

As we lead through uncertainty, how can we create a culture where both students and staff can thrive? How can we work to overcome fear and fail forward when things don't go as planned? How can we best leverage the things that we still control?

Regardless of what happens outside our school walls - virtual or not - together we can work to create meaningful opportunities for those we serve when we hyper-focus on the things that matter most.

The work is hard, but our kids are worth it!
