EI: enhancing employability and international mobility
EI: enhancing employability and international mobility - Verity Kingsmill & Maryanne Kelton
With greater focus on employability across the tertiary sector and the increased competition in the employment market, the need to differentiate our graduates continues to be a challenge. Abraham (2006) identifies that emotional intelligence (EI) skills have been strongly associated with dynamic leadership, satisfying personal life experiences, and success in the workplace. This has resulted in calls for the incorporation of EI competencies in university curricula. This project saw the development of an EI teaching and learning tool that can be applied in both course programs and mobility programs.
