ACD Session No: 387 : Emotional Intelligence. Concluded on Saturday, January 28 2017

Teaching and learning are two sides of one process. However, learning is beneficial only when it is effective. Teachers put their heart and soul in the teaching/learning process but if learning is not effective then the whole exercise is futile. In order to make the learning process effective, it is important to understand students' emotions and feelings. The teacher should aim to empathize to be aware of their students' emotions and feelings, particularly about the process and environment of learning. A student's feelings and emotions are pivotal in determining whether the learning process is effective.


In this workshop we will:

  • Explore the importance of students' emotions and feelings in connection with the effectiveness of the teaching/ learning process.
  • Focus on empathy on part of the teacher and how crucial it is.
  • Examine the ways as to  how teachers can empathise with their students in order to make learning as fruitful as possible.
  • Share practical examples and techniques to attain empathy.
  • Look into how students may be trained to develop empathy to make the learning process more enriching.
