Resource Showcase: Mindfulness, SEL, Wellness
Thank you to all who participated in our live
Virtual Resource Showcase!
What is the Resource Showcase?
Our intention for the Resource Showcase is to create an opportunity for educators and leaders to learn about powerful mindfulness, SEL, and wellness resources to invest in and support their journeys within education or personal growth.
Who can attend?
This is a free and open-to-all event. The Resource Showcase may especially be helpful for school administrators, SEL/climate/mindfulness teams, as well as curriculum and instruction teams who are looking for additional resources for their schools. The Resource Showcase is also open to any interested educator or professional looking to learn more.
How does it work?
On Thursday, March 9th, there will be a Resource Showcase schedule where you can see what types of resources and services you would like to learn more about. The resource providers have a special RSVP Zoom link for you to join. During the live learning session, you can experience, practice, and ask questions to the specific resource provider. You are able to go to as many live learning sessions as you would like. It is free to attend and is open to anyone interested in learning more.
The last learning sessions of the day are focused around adult well-being. These sessions are scheduled for later in the day so that educators can attend without impacting their school day hours.
How do I sign up?
Be sure to subscribe to COSEM’s mailing list for updates for the Resource Showcase.
Choose the live Showcase sessions to RSVP to and receive the different join links.
Join the sessions at their assigned time (CENTRAL TIME ZONE) and bring an open mind, open heart, and questions.
How do I prepare?
Before the live Resource Showcase sessions, take some time to explore the vendors below (coming soon) and in our Digital Resource Guide (coming soon) to see what they have to offer to your learning community and/or to your personal well-being. Map out the sessions you want to attend and reflect on questions you may have.
There are additional resource providers within the Digital Resource Guide who may not be leading a live session, but that you may want to explore to see if they are a good fit for your learning community.
NOTE: All vendors are independent of COSEM. We do not do an extensive review of the listings and do not specifically endorse the resources. However, we provide these resources as a starting point for individual research by educators and schools so they can find the best fit for their needs and learning community.
