A social and emotional learning curriculum embedded in freshman seminar content can support freshmen in the transition from high school to college. As such, the university participating in this study has increased the number of students taking freshman seminars. To accommodate the increase in social and emotional learning sections, several nonclinical faculty members were invited to teach the seminar which required training in the curriculum. The purpose of this study was an exploratory assessment of the process of teaching the social and emotional learning curriculum to determine the perceived impact of both the training and teaching experience on the faculty members and their teaching styles. This was a qualitative study, using a systematic thematic content analysis of transcribed interviews. Results indicated the emergence of several themes that highlighted a transformative learning experience for the faculty and indicated that there is a parallel process in teaching and learning.
