Adolescents have both the cognitive and the emotional capacity to deepen their emotional intelligence, and for that reason secondary schools are being viewed as an ideal setting in which to teach and promote EI.
In this program, Dr. Karen Hansen, coordinator of the EI and Education Research Unit of Swinburne University, compares and contrasts definitions and models of EI.
In addition, she suggests practical ways in which educators can promote and nurture EI through a variety of classroom activities and by rearranging the physical classroom environment.
