Abstract

This study investigated the influence of Emotional Intelligence and learning styles on students' academic achievement among students of Education Faculty, University Teknologi Mara (UiTM). The study aimed to find out the level of Emotional Intelligence and the learning styles employed by the respondents who were also teacher candidates. It also attempted to establish the relationship between the two variables examined and how well students perform academically. The data of this research were obtained through the use of a questionnaire which elicited information on the students' Emotional Intelligence level as well as their preferred style of learning. The results of the study revealed that the respondents had high level of Emotional Intelligence. It was also found that the dominant learning styles employed by the respondents were Visual and Auditory learning styles. In addition, two domains {Self-Emotion Appraisal and Understanding of Emotion) of the Emotional Intelligence investigated were found to be significantly and positively associated with the respondents' academic achievement. It is also the case for Visual learning style though it was not statistically significant. The findings of the study hold important implications on the value of Emotional Intelligence as well as learning styles and their relationships with students' academic performance. On top of that, the findings also shed some lights on teacher training programmes, particularly in terms of the teaching approaches employed and the value of Emotional Intelligence among pre-service teachers.
