Abstract:In the last decades is growing the number of researches that show the importance of the inclusion of specific training for the development of emotional competences in the university curricula. In addition, the attention on the integral development of the university profiles for an effective total incorporation to the labor world and for a holistic development of the potentials of the university students is of great interest for the scientific community. In this way, the present paper describes a Massive Open On-Line Course on Emotional Intelligence for Higher Education like a learning method that challenges university students to take content emotional competence and apply their new understanding by working cooperatively in groups to seek solutions to real world problems across e-learning context. Emotional intelligence involves two important competencies to make career successful:
(1) the ability to recognise their own feelings and other people’s feelings and emotions, as well;
(2) the ability to use that information to resolve conflicts, problems, and improve interactions with other people.
Since the introduction of the Bologna process, the goal of a complete education is not only to teach technical skills but also other competences, such as team work, effective communication skills, project and time management and the ability to marshal our emotions in pursuit of that end. Nevertheless, the Emotional intelligence learning involves significant time and effort on the part of students, and this may hinder the acquisition of specific content for each degree. However, the results show a higher level of satisfaction with the Massive Open On-Line Course on Emotional Intelligence for Higher Education and a broader recognition of the enormous benefits that emotional competence can bring in the personal development of university students.
