Why Emotional Intelligence is Needed for Educators and Students

Why Emotional Intelligence is Needed for Educators and Students | Adult Education and Career Development | Scoop.it
Technology has changed the way we communicate, including the format and perception of what it means to interact with others.

This form of communication is becoming more evident in the classroom, whether in an academic or corporate training class. Instead of relying upon technological devices and social networking websites, st

Learn to Communicate Well With Instructors | Adult Education and Career Development | Scoop.it
The ability to communicate effectively is one of the most important skills required for students to participate in their classes. Online students have a unique opportunity available to them for communicating with their instructors, if they choose to use it, because they have time to think about what they are going to communicate before they post something in the classroom or send an email. For students in a traditional classroom environment they may either be willing to speak up in class if they feel comfortable doing so or they may have a fear of speaking and fail to get involved unless they

Personal career development is a concept that is related to a fluid and often elusive state of being because it can be tied to an emotion of happiness.
