Paraphrased BY KEVIN A. STODA

The following is largely a paraphrase of an address given at IMPROVING TEACHING QUALITY 1: a SYMPOSIUM held at ROTANA RESORT, SALALAH, and Oman on 10 April 2017. (The English Language Center at Salalah College of Technology, under the guidance of Mr. Saeed Al-Mashikhi, Head of the ELC and the Chairman of the Steering Committee, had organized the symposium at Salalah Rotana Resort, entitled "Improving Teaching Quality 1".)

Dr. Faical Hamadi Ben Khalifa, the Director of Foundation Programs at Dhofar University, spoke on the need for more awareness, training, and growth related to emotional intelligence in Oman's curricula development and in Oman' s practices in education at all levels in the country.

Emotions are typically instinctive. Thus, the emotional brain responds to an event more quickly than does the thinking brain or thinking mind. On the one hand, the "thinking mind" may be 'thinking' about emotions that are perceived while, on the other hand, feelings have already been acting out on this emotion and our connected thoughts at those same moments.
