Emotional intelligence and the educator: Why is it essential?
with Dr. Marleen Azzam, Dental Hygiene
Tuesday, April 5, 2022, 11:00am-12:00pm (Online) 

Like the technology sector, the education sector is evolving into a more interactive and social platform; therefore, the transition gradient from effective to affective has gained immense importance in higher education (Kaur et al., 2019). The educator has a pivotal role in dispensing information; however, when guiding students in the learner-centered environment, utilizing emotional intelligence may be just as valuable as “hard skills.” In this session, attendees will
learn about the value of emotional intelligence in the learning environment and why it is essential for the educator and student interaction. Attendees will also be able to describe what emotional intelligence is, the association between emotional intelligence and teaching performance, emotional intelligence and student impact, the relationship between emotional intelligence and educator stress, and training on emotional intelligence. This session is best suited for educators across all disciplines. By the end of this session, attendees will understand why emotional intelligence is essential in the educational setting.
