COU104e aims to develop your five social-emotional competencies (SECs), namely, self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, relationship management and responsible relationship for the 21st century. The domains of self-awareness and self-management relate to the understanding of self which helps in identifying strengths and weaknesses, and managing one’s emotions and personal behaviours. The domain of social awareness and relationship management relate to understanding the needs of others and one’s social interactions. In responsible decision-making, moral and ethical choices have to be considered with regard to how to handle oneself, relate to others and deal with challenging situations. The course will build one's SECs, by providing relevant real-life activities that address social and emotional dimensions, so that one may be given opportunities to practise these SECs through role-plays and other hands-on activities.
