Cultivating COMPASSion

A Quick Impact Course

A self-paced course full of practical, impactful ideas for your teaching & learning. 




Using Systems Thinking to Support Social Emotional Learning
Each of us has a unique way of looking at the world, dealing with stress, finding joy and connecting with others. Sometimes though, we can become fixated on our perspective. This course will show you how to use the Sustainability Compass to help students step outside themselves and build awareness of other people’s perspectives, the ways their actions impact others, and ways to ask emotionally intelligent questions.

This course can be started and completed at any time. It includes 2-4 hours of guided activities that we believe are relevant for all educators and can be modified for use with any age range.

Deepen Your Knowledge

This course is designed to deepen your understanding of systems thinking, social emotional learning competencies and how they can be used in education.

The course includes many examples of learning activities from teachers around the world that you can emulate.
