The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and Educator Preparation Laboratory (EdPrepLab) partnered to present this webinar on social and emotional learning (SEL), cultural competence, and equity in teacher preparation. Participants learned how teacher educators can integrate SEL and cultural competence into educator preparation, with the goal of equipping teachers to consider the needs of the whole child with equity in mind. Speakers explored the connections between SEL, cultural competence, and equity in conceptual and practical terms through the following:

●  presenting multiple perspectives on the integration of SEL and cultural competence into educator preparation;

●  exploring the intersections of SEL, cultural competence, and equity in teacher preparation;

●  identifying benefits and challenges of integrating SEL and cultural competence into educator preparation, including considerations of equity; and

●  providing recommendations for educator preparation faculty about how to integrate SEL and cultural competence into coursework and clinical experiences for teacher candidates.
