Building Bridge between Learning and Positive Emotion: How to Apply Emotional Factor in Instructional Designing Process?
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 27th, Chicago, IL, October 19-23, 2004
For millennia, emotional states have been viewed as avoidable impediments to rational thinking (Ellis & Newton, 2000). Several reasons have been pointed out. The lack of consensus of the definition on emotion that tend to conflict with each other was suggested as a main reason (Price, 1998). Also the difficulty of research methodology such as direct observation of private internal emotional experience and the experiment setups which often hide away the true nature of real emotional experience were indicated as additional reasons (Gadanho & Hallam, 2001). Yet, even with those restrictions, the research on emotions has been conducted in various academic fields including politics, business administrations, economics, organizational science, computer science, and medical science. This paper discusses the folllowing topics: (1) Positive emotions and Cognitive process; (2) Emotion in instructional design; (3) Two positive emotion states and instructional design; (4) Learning interest; and (5) Flow.
