Online Workshop: Using Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in the Classroom

19 September

As part of our Continuing Professional Development for our teachers, three of our BibiNogs’ teachers, namely Ms Haryani, Ms Lisa Li and Ms Candice Ong joined with 100 participants in an online workshop titled “Using Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in the Classroom” on 7 and 8 September 2020 organised by the Principals Academy. The online workshop presented by Mrs Belinda Charles, Dean of Principals Academy, helps to equip teachers with the EQ skills which will give them an understanding of both self and others. It will enrich their teacher-student relationship, give them tools to teach character education, and help them create a productive workplace. This course will enable teachers to identify and understand emotions and the patterns they take as well as navigating a path between conflicting emotions while strengthening values.

During the webinar, Dr Robinson provided the attendees with evidence-based activities that can help their family to thrive at home, school and work.

What Our Attendees Said…

  1. This was an excellent seminar. My daughter was sitting beside me throughout, we learnt together. I think this seminar not only benefit parents, so perhaps the school can consider offering this to the students in school.
  2. It was fantastic! Congratulations for organising it and Dr Paula for her generosity and experience to make it so clear and engaging. The short activity from Smiling Mind/Head Space was super!
  3. An insightful and effective reminder of having a positive mindset Thank you so much for all the very practical advice, can’t wait to apply them!
  4. This has been a truly enriching and insightful talk. Thanks very much for generously sharing your thoughts and expertise, Dr, Robinson!
  5. Probably can we have more short sessions like this which allow busy folks to be able to set aside pockets of time to attend instead of one whole day, which might be info overload? So many wonderful ideas that will be incredibly useful in my work with children
  6. Paula – that was really practical advice that I can transfer to my parenting and teaching.
  7. Thank you so much, Dr Robinson, this talk is fantastic and so useful to my husband and me!
  8. Thank you for sharing Paula! This is great stuff for parents and teachers. And now practise, practise, practise!
