Course summary



Teaching is generally considered as fifty percent knowledge and fifty percent interpersonal or communication skills. The art of communication involves listening and speaking as well as reading and writing. Teachers need to be highly skilled in all these areas to be excellent in their profession.

For a teacher, it is not just important to give a quality lecture; they also need to be able to transmit knowledge, skills and values at the same time. Communication skills for teachers are thus as important as their in-depth knowledge of the particular subject which they teach.

It is only through communication skills that a teacher can introduce creative and effective solutions to the students’ problems.
