Positive potential of education in emotional intelligence development
Author: Kuimova Marina Valeryevna, PhD in Pedagogical Science National research, Tomsk polytechnic university
What people need and what they want may be very different.
Teachers are those who educate the people to appreciate the things they need.
Emotional intelligence (EI) concerns the ability to grasp, control and evaluate emotions. Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer give the following definition of this term: "the subset of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions” . On the whole, people with high EI have prodigious advantages because it helps them regulate both positive and negative emotions and find the right way out practically in any situation.
Thus researchers assert that EI skills can and should be improved [1, 2, 4]. To help students become more emotionally and socially competent lecturers should use different tasks. For example:
· group work (develops collaboration and interpersonal skills, empathy, negotiation skills. Students learn how to compromise and cooperate with one another; become more confident, etc.);
· problem solving tasks (enhance thinking skills, encourage to reflect on the consequences);
· communicative tasks (develop listening and communication skills).
Using various tasks lecturers should set clear aims, encourage self-confidence, patience, require learners to take responsibility for their actions and develop optimistic attitude. Overall high EI is the key not only to well-being and good grades, but also to success in the workplace and other spheres of social life.
