Event details

Psychology in Education Seminar

Psychosocial capacities (also known as non-cognitive capacities or social-emotional competencies) refer to social-emotional skills, motivation, and self-beliefs held by individuals. Increasingly, researchers and educators are aware of the important role that such capacities play in students’ short- and long-term healthy social, emotional, and academic development. In this talk, Dr Collie will discuss results from several recent studies conducted in Australia that examined psychosocial capacities among students. The studies will traverse various capacities such as students’ social-emotional behaviours, adaptability, motivation, and engagement. The talk will conclude with implications for research and practice.
