November 21, 2019 | 3:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. EST

Learn how to develop emotional intelligence skills in students on academic probation to help them improve their academic performance.

Why This Topic Matters

Teaching emotional intelligence skills provides students on academic probation the strategies they need to improve their academic performance. Students with higher levels of emotional intelligence are able to better manage themselves and relate to others around them. This can help them develop improved self-motivation, resilience and decision-making—essential skills to helping students become more confident learners.

Who Should Attend?

This program is ideal for higher education professionals who oversee or advise academic probation programs and are interested in incorporating positive emotional skill-building into programs to improve student success.

Overview

Emotional intelligence is a person’s ability to identify, evaluate, control, and express his or her emotions. Developing positive emotional skills improves student resilience, problem-solving, intrinsic motivation, decision-making and goal achievement—key aspects of college success. In this session, higher education professionals will learn ways to integrate emotional intelligence theory and skill-building into academic probation programs to give students strategies they need to better succeed in college.

This interactive webinar will help attendees:

  • Understand current theory on emotional intelligence

  • Explore key areas of emotional intelligence skill-building that can make the greatest impact on student success

  • Look at how to integrate emotional intelligence development into academic probation programs

  • Case study

  • Consider how to include the EQ-i 2.0 assessment in current programming

Attendees will be able to apply knowledge of how emotional intelligence can positively impact student success for students on academic probation.

As many as 1 in 3 first-year students won't make it back for sophomore year; often they feel overwhelmed, lonely, isolated, and have difficulty adjusting to the demands of college and university. However, research concludes that “young people with high EQ earn higher grades, stay in school, and make healthier choices (in Firestone, 2016).”
