Examining Perception of Emotional Intelligence in Online Professors
Hamilton, Diane
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v27 n1 p63-81 Jan 2018
The perceptions of the knowledge and value online instructors place on emotional intelligence (EI), warrants scholarly attention. Thirty-eight adjunct faculty members who were recruited through LinkedIn completed an instrument developed for this purpose. Instructors ranked their perception of the importance of the factors associated with EI including stress management, decision-making, interpersonal skills, self-expression, and self-perception. Within each of these five factors, online adjunct faculty members reported the associated skill they believed most important within each factor. The results indicated that the majority believed flexibility was most important for stress management, problem-solving most important for decision-making, relationship building for interpersonal skills, emotional expression, assertiveness, and independence were equally ranked for self-expression, and emotional self-awareness was most important for self-perception.
