Salam Y. Syagha

It is well known all over the world that the class instructor is the most forceful factor that impacts students’ progress and achievement other than their parents, friends and general environment. Many studies and researchers have attempted to uncover factors that may facilitate and enhance the learning procedure, including the special characteristics that render a teacher more effective than another. However, over the last few years, studies have proven that instructors, who try hard to improve relationships, while serving related and sometimes sophisticated instruction, demonstrate greater student achievement. This study is addressed to educational institutions in general, educators in particular, counselors, supervisors, trainers, and whoever interested in flourishing the learning process. The target of this study is to examine the influence of emotional intelligence level on students’ Academic achievement in general elective courses, through implementing distributed standardized questionnaires at LIU Nabatieh and Saida. The study employed a descriptive quantitative methodology to answer research questions. The sample contained 549 participants, divided as 14 instructors and 535 undergraduates. Data from the selected participants were collected during Spring 2017 and Fall 2017/2018. The findings revealed the positive impact emotional intelligence imposes on university students. They show a significant relationship between both variables through observing the instructors’ emotional intelligence level and the students’ academic performance. The research recommends that teachers adopt new strategies and classroom activities to increase the students’ emotional intelligence level, besides providing a chance to let them express their feelings and emotional experiences. By following strategies to highlight the emotional aspect of learning, students’ emotional intelligence level will increase and thus their performance will be better.
