What is this?
Inside SEL an online multimedia intiative focused on curating relevant headlines, policy updates, and articles pertaining to social-emotional learning.
We hope to act as a megaphone, amplifying the great work already being done by leaders in education across the country while also publishing original content. By providing a central location for sharing news and insights, we hope that Inside SEL will help to initiate more meaningful conversations about how to enhance learning for all students.
We also publish a free email newsletter (This Month in SEL) that curates the latest articles, policy updates, case studies, and resources from the field of social-emotional learning (and, more broadly, education) and delivers that content directly to your inbox at the end of each month.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is remotely curious about what’s happening in the world of social-emotional learning. Our community includes educators, administrators, my mother, researchers, parents, students, and ed-tech aficionados. We know that “social-emotional learning” is one of the most over-used and buzz-wordy terms in education right now; our goal is to cut through all the noise and focus on bringing you the most relevant content each month.
Who are you?
My name is Nick Woolf and I am a second-year graduate student pursuing my master’s in Child Studies and Human Development at Tufts University. My research interests include social-emotional learning, ed-tech, children’s media, public policy, media literacy education, instructional design, and venture capital.
Why did you decide to start this?
As I prepared to transition out of my former job and start in graduate school during the summer of 2018, I started looking for news websites and blogs to follow so that I could learn more about social-emotional learning and get the latest news. I could not find a single outlet that provided curated content across multiple sources that was specifically focused on SEL. I started Inside SEL in August of 2018 to help deepen my knowledge of social-emotional learning and share SEL-related news with a wider audience.

What types of content will you publish?
We publish interviews with leaders in the field of SEL, analyses of research papers and academic reports, original thought pieces, and a plethora of other types of content (from research guides to a job board).
