Foundational Skills of Emotional Intelligence
(Six Weeks per Course)
The Foundational Skills of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Relational Skills of EI courses are both six-week, asynchronous, online learning experiences. There are seven live, synchronous, group check-ins—four during the Foundational Skills course, and three during the Relational Skills course. You will be grouped into cohorts facilitated by trained EI coaches. Discussions and conversations between members of a cohort are entirely online, through chat and messaging features in the Dream See Do eLearning platform.
(One Week per Module)
Each course consists of six Modules (plus an introductory Module demonstrating the features of the platform), released weekly. They each represent a key aspect of EI. They are intended to be completed over five days, with one lesson outlined per day.
(90 Minutes per Live Event)
Facilitators will also host seven 90-minute synchronous live group check-ins (four during the Foundational Skills course, and three during the Relational Skills course. The purpose of these sessions is to strengthen the relationships between cohort members, deepen understanding of the material, and invite feedback to help us continue to improve the Learner experience.
It is highly recommended you attend these sessions live, but we will provide recordings as well. Learners will see the dates for their Live Events in the introductory module on Dream See Do.
(~15-30 Minutes per Lesson)
Each module contains 5-6 lessons. You should expect that each lesson will take approximately 15-30 minutes in total, though some lessons will ask you to complete steps at various points over the course of a day. These are not live events.
(~5 minutes per Step)
A single lesson consists of multiple steps (generally 3-5). These steps will contain some combination of readings, videos, audio files, or short journaling prompts. They should only take a few minutes per step.
Relational Skills of Emotional Intelligence
The structure of Relational Skills of Emotional Intelligence will largely mirror that of the Foundational Skills of Emotional Intelligence: 6 modules, 3 Live Events, 5-6 lessons per module, and 3-5 steps per lesson.
Learners will see the dates for their Live Events in the introductory module on Dream See Do.
