Fostering an Emotionally Intelligent Learning Assistance Environment
Learning is inescapably an emotional process. Regardless of the content, emotions are omnipresent and impact the effectiveness of a learning experience. Some students and educators believe they can remove emotion from learning, creating an anecdotal dichotomy of the head (thinking and learning) versus the heart (feeling and emotion). However, this separation is an illusion because the brain is the foundation of both thinking and feeling, and they are naturally interconnected.
