Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom: Do We Practice it as Educators?
Presentation by Dr. Rana Raddawi, Department of English
Emotional Intelligence (EQ or EI) has been revived, over the last two decades, as an urgently needed skill to keep up with a high globalized competition whether in education or in the work market and achieve a better performance and distinguished success. In education, empirical evidence has shown that students who are subject to EQ in the curriculum perform better than those who do not study it, even if the latter's IQ is, at time, very high. According to the latest theories in education, a positive climate in the classroom requires intrapersonal and interpersonal skills of the teachers. These skills are the components of emotional intelligence. This workshop demonstrates the impact of emotional intelligence on the teacher-student relationship to create a positive classroom climate. It also provides information on how to become an emotionally intelligent teacher by combining charisma and popularity with professionalism, quality teaching and leadership.
