The Role of Emotional Intelligence Competencies in Effective Teaching and Teacher's Performance in Higher Education
Kaur, Irameet; Shri, Charu; Mital, K. M.
Higher Education for the Future, v6 n2 p188-206 Jul 2019
The relevance of emotions in teaching is now a widely studied aspect, although contemplation on how the teachers are able to realize, regulate and control their emotions is being deliberated upon. The article attempts to understand the concept of emotional intelligence (EI) in higher education teachers and how it can be incorporated in effective teaching as emotional intelligence competencies (EIC) for superior performance. The technique of structural equation modelling (SEM) has been applied to validate and propose a model for EI-based teaching competencies and their relation with the core competencies. It was statistically proven that EIC have a strong impact on attitude of teachers which in turns contribute highest towards superior performance. The study contributes towards research in the field of EI in teaching and suggests that institutes should give critical importance to enhancement of EIC and accordingly implement suitable training programmes for ensuring effective teaching and superior performance.
