Over the last decade, Swinburne has been developing ways to measure and enhance emotional intelligence in school environments. Emotional intelligence is a set of skills to navigate our world — identifying, expressing, using and managing our emotions for success. Arising from unique partnerships with schools around the world, our work focuses on a whole school approach to emotional intelligence that includes school children, staff and parents.
Our research has shown that developing emotional intelligence in schools improves:
- academic outcomes
- personal resilience and wellbeing in staff and students
- interpersonal relationships
- sporting and leadership capabilities.
We regularly publish papers in the area of emotional intelligence. Access and download our current publications and materials.
