The IICE has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice, Pedagogy, Arts, History, Open Learning, Distance Education, Math and Science Education, ICT, Language Learning, Education (Early Year, Secondary, Post-Secondary and Higher), E-Learning, and identify emerging research topics.

The IICE-2022 encourages you to submit workshop proposals. Workshop duration is 60 minutes. All the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. You can consider organising a workshop that is related to IICE-2022 topics.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. It offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Workshop 1

Title: Emotional awareness beyond cliché: what it is, what isn’t, how to develop it?


Emotional awareness is considered a foundational skill of emotional intelligence (Barchard, Brackett & Mestre, 2016; Mayer, Salovey & Caruso, 2004). It constitutes a crucial skill for further understanding of emotion experiences and, ultimately, their regulation. While many concepts from emotion intelligence, including emotional awareness, made their way into education (e.g., Wellbeing Curriculum in Ireland), it is important to keep practices aligned with the latest developments in order to avoid an eventual worn-out of the initial idea and its fall into a sort of cliché status. This workshop will not cover emotional intelligence as a whole. Instead, will focus on emotional awareness, common misconceptions, its mechanisms and ways to develop it within oneself, while helping others in doing so in everyday life (e.g., students, family and friends). Participants will engage with tools used in a new social and emotional learning program developed by the organiser, currently being tested in an Irish secondary school, as part of his PhD research project.

Objectives and Motivation:

This workshop has, as a starting point, the idea that novel and exciting ideas may, at times, face a worn-out process, by virtue of fast and widespread dissemination, coupled with a fast decrease in scrutiny from the public – a cliché is born. Although the organiser is not claiming that emotional awareness became a cliché, certainly believes that keep asking important questions and scrutinising the concept together, revitalize an important interest and engagement with its practice. The present workshop intends to highlight important ideas behind the concepts of emotion, awareness and regulation. These ideas will provide the background and rational to introduce a mix of known as well as novel practices for emotional awareness development. It hopes to revitalize interest in emotional awareness in light of the latest findings in brain and emotion science, create an understanding of potential mechanisms and engage participants with ways of developing it in themselves and others. The tools presented are currently part of the Smart Hearts Lab, a social and emotional learning program currently being implemented in an Irish secondary school.
