The National Resource Center is pleased to now offer online courses on current topics related to the first-year experience and students in transition. Online courses are designed to come as close as possible to providing students with the same course content and opportunities for interaction with classmates and with the instructor as traditional or classroom-based courses as well as take advantage of pedagogy and teaching techniques that are not possible or uncommon in a traditional format. Our online courses will take place during a four-week or five-week period with the majority of instruction occurring in an asynchronous environment. Asynchronous instruction is neither timebound nor place-bound and does not require the simultaneous participation of all students and instructors. It utilizes toolssuch as email, threaded discussions/forums, listservs, and blog.
Participants will earn 1.5 continuing education units.

After a 31-year career in higher education as a professor and dean of academic affairs, Korrel now works with educational institutions and faculty to promote emotional intelligence development. She has developed emotional intelligence curricula, designed strategies for graduate programs to assess the emotional intelligence of program applicants as part of the admissions process, and led numerous faculty and staff professional development sessions to teach faculty about the importance of emotional intelligence in teaching and in predicting students’ success. She also trains university faculty to use the Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0, an assessment tool that measure emotional intelligence in graduate and undergraduate students.

Research demonstrates the most successful college students possess higher emotional intelligence (EI) and by infusing EI learning into first-year experience programs (e.g., first-year seminar course topic, into first-year advising or first-year programming, or as a follow-up course to the first-year seminar), outcomes such as enhanced retention and graduation rates and greater academic and social success are achieved. This course will provide an overview of relevant literature related to first-year students and EI, resources and strategies for teaching emotional intelligence skills -- including sample syllabi, activities, readings, and more -- that you will be able to use immediately, and a section on gaining buy in on your campus.
- Participants will develop an understanding of what emotional intelligence is and how it impacts first-year student success, including retention and ultimate graduation.
- Participants will identify various methods and strategies for enhancing first-year student learning about emotional intelligence on their campus including through the first-year seminar, advising, residence life, and more.
- Participants will develop strategies for increasing buy-in on their campus for teaching emotional intelligence and infusing it into first-year programs.
- Participants will design an approach (or modify an existing one) for teaching emotional intelligence on their campus.
