This study investigated how engineering higher education teachers (N=12) physiological levels of arousal (electrodermal activity) and perceived emotions (experience sampling) were related to self-reported teaching activities (planning, teaching, tutoring, prof. dev., assessment) during the time period of 8-13 days.
Results indicated that teachers‘ level of arousal was higher than average in all self-reported events. Lowest activity levels were recorded during tutoring sessions. Results indicate that activity during the events is not related that much on the level of interaction with other(s). Participants self-reported mostly positive and activating emotions in teaching-related events (corresponding also to a higher level of arousal), but also negative activating and deactivating emotions were reported (latter corresponding to the lower level of arousal).
