Emotional intelligence, also known as emotional quotient or EQ, is the ability to recognize, utilize, and control one’s own emotions in a favorable way in order to alleviate stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome obstacles, and defuse conflict. The concept of Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) has been accepted by many educators and educational institutions in the form of ‘social & emotional learning’ (SEL) programs and modules. In 2002, UNESCO launched a global drive to promote SEL, highlighting the significance of developing these key life skills. Recent research indicates that certain non-cognitive qualities, such as Emotional Intelligence, may have a positive effect on academic performance.

The goal of this course is to equip the participants with knowledge related to the ten basic principles for implementing SEL in educational settings as well as practical tools for self-awareness, self-management, recognizing others’ emotions and understanding the relationship between thoughts and emotions. Moreover, the participants will be hugely benefited by in depth knowledge of classroom related SEL skills, such as listening and talking in ways that resolve conflicts instead of escalating them.
