What is SEE Learning

The Science of Compassion.
The Cultivation of Awareness.
The Tools of Engagement.

The Future of Education.

Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning is an innovative K-12 education program developed by Emory University.

SEE Learning™ provides educators with the tools they need to foster the development of emotional, social, and ethical intelligence for students and themselves.

SEE Learning™ represents the state of the art in education by enhancing SEL programming with key additional components, including:

  • attention training
  • compassion and ethical discernment
  • systems thinking
  • resilience and trauma-informed practice

This program provides educators with a developmentally-staged curriculum consisting of easy-to-implement lessons, the conceptual framework used to design the curriculum, and resources for educator preparation and development. SEE Learning empowers students to engage ethically as part of a global community and provides educators with the tools to support student well-being.

We are excited to begin the development of our primary research program in SEE Learning. The curriculum, educator trainings, and framework are all informed by state-of-the-art research on trauma and resilience, compassion science, the science of systems learning, and development studies in social and emotional learning. For our program to continue evolving as an evidence-based program, we aim to focus our research goals around the following areas:

Program Evaluation

Monitoring program delivery is an essential part of program evaluation. We are working with partners to develop strategies for assessing the quality of educator training, and for monitoring the delivery-fidelity of the learning experiences to students at designated sites. We are also interested in evaluating the effectiveness of the learning experiences in improving student outcomes. Finally, we are developing strategies to respond to the outcomes of program monitoring and evaluation for future editions of the educator trainings and the curriculum.

“If we want to reach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children.” mahatma gandhi https://seelearning.emory.edu/resources-research SEE Learning at Emory University 3 SEE Learning includes several innovative features not found in most education programs:
1. A focus on the cultivation of compassion and other basic human values and “ethical intelligence”:
• SEE Learning facilitates the nurturance of compassion, kindness, and ethical intelligence, not through blind acceptance or mandate, but through critical thinking, personal exploration, and discovery. It approaches ethics in a way that can be acceptable to people of any religion or no religion. The cultivation of basic human values is foundational not only for personal and interpersonal well-being, but also for equity, justice, and peacebuilding. 2. Methods for attention training: • Students are often told to pay attention, but SEE Learning includes lessons to help them learn how to pay attention and cultivate attention as an ongoing skill and strength. 3. The inclusion of “systems thinking” at all levels of education: • SEE Learning’s comprehensive framework includes not only the Personal and Social domains found in many programs, but also a Systems domain. Students learn how to understand and navigate their own emotional lives; how to interact constructively with others; and how to navigate the broader systems we all exist in by learning systems thinking and exploring interdependence. 4. A resilience- and trauma-informed approach: • Students’ nervous systems are constantly affected by stress as well as direct and indirect threats to their well-being. SEE Learning explicitly teaches students about their nervous systems and how to regulate their bodies and levels of stress for optimal well-being. This knowledge and these skills can be beneficial for all students, whether they have directly suffered trauma or not. 5. A constructivist, student-focused pedagogy: • In SEE Learning students are provided with tools to explore their inner life for themselves. Teachers serve the role of facilitators, rather than being the authority of what is true. In this way learning leads to personal insight, which can then deepen into embodied understanding. Ethical values are not prescribed by the teacher, the program, or the school, but emerge from reflection and critical thinking. Facets of Religion is a religious resources index and is the
WWW Virtual Library's official Religion category. The WWW Virtual Library was the very first web directory, and Facets of Religion has been around from the early days in the mid 1990s when it was hosted on the University of Freiburg servers by Armin Müller.

You can find just about anything about anything here, except gratuitous commercialism and unrelated useless links. All links in our directory are carefully selected and reviewed, but of course we also greatly appreciate your help in keeping the directory useful. You can help by letting us know when you encounter a broken or inappropriate link.

This site has been around for well over a decade, and in its first incarnations (if you believe in that) it was a very simple HTML site lnking to various religious resources, with a particular focus on the academic study of religion.

Start by reading up on various belief systems or interfaith resources.
