This workshop will introduce you to a new tool we have just developed and validated in the French Canadian college Network. It consists of an EQ test that traces in twenty minutes your emotional profile, and allows you as well to get your students emotional portrait, to know them better and to make them become better learners.
The results of this new EQ test are presently helping us to establish correlations between academic achievements and emotional skills, and to identify the four main skills that correlate the most with the academic success.
This inspiring project is helping us in developing pedagogical strategies to enhance our college student’s emotional skills in the perspective of increasing their success. Later on, this test will be proposed and adapted for the workplace.
