Dr. Rachelle Rogers-Ard returns with course on using SEL to build strong relationships
A popular class offered by UCOP Learning and Development has returned by popular demand to offer staff an opportunity to learn the basics of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and how they can be applied in the workplace to better communicate and connect with many people in healthy ways. The concepts you’ll learn in this course tie closely to the UC Competencies of Building Relationships: Belonging and Community. By taking this workshop, you’ll learn easy-to-implement techniques to strengthen your knowledge in this area.
This course will be led by popular facilitator Dr. Rachelle Rogers-Ard — a published author, adjunct professor, school district administrator, and organizational development specialist with over 25 years’ experience. The newly restructured course will take place on June 10 and June 17, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (PT).

- “I have found Dr. Rogers-Ard’s workshops to be fantastic! Her style of presentation makes the information easily understandable. The amount of information and pacing of the presentation makes the information very accessible. I can follow along easily, without feeling overloaded with material. I enjoy her clarity, focus and presence!”
- “Wow — what an impactful session. Dr. Rogers-Ard is a whole-hearted facilitator. She demonstrated care for the participants and honored what everyone was sharing. She also did a great job of monitoring the chat and incorporating what people were saying. It was heartening to see the reactions of other participants as well – lots of ‘yes’ and affirming comments.”
- “The reflection questions posed with each domain of SEL were a very helpful way of promoting the uptake of content and applying it in our lives. Since this is a highly personal topic, it requires us to reflect on our own experiences in order to make changes in our lives. The other participants enriched the class session as well.”
- “I really appreciated the pacing and thoughtfulness that went into this session and foregrounding the need to be present. The discussions were really thought-provoking and powerful — I appreciated the very concrete, practical approaches that we shared with each other.”
