Developing emotional intelligence in teachers a major challenge

Saturday, 23 June 2018 | PNS | Dehradun

Developing emotional intelligence for differentiating correct from incorrect, proper from improper, relevant and beneficial from irrelevant information and using it for education in these times of increasing use of information technology is one of the biggest challenges in the field of education. The Centre for Ethics and Values, Delhi University, director Tushar Kanti Mishra said this during a month-long induction training programme organised for the higher education faculty from various colleges at HNB Garhwal Central University. This induction training programme is being organised under the Government of India's Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission for Teachers and Teaching by the Faculty Development Centre of the university.

Mishra stressed that the flood of information through excessive use of information technology has severely affected the capacity for thinking, comprehending and differentiating in the teachers and students. The teachers and students are getting stuck in the trap of better marks and grades. As a result, the education system is preparing students for employment but it is not developing them into citizens who are sensitive, with high human values, cultural values and leadership qualities. Increasing materialistic expectations and decreasing sense to differentiate has led to emergence of disappointment, frustration, depression and indulgence in anti-social activities as a major problem, he said.

Addressing the gathering, the Faculty Development Centre director professor Indu Pandey Khanduri reiterated that developing emotional intelligence along with intelligence among the teachers is a major challenge for meeting the basic aims of education and developing quality human resource.
