The Degree of Practicing Effective Communication Skills by Faculty Members at the University of Hail - Al-Shamli Branch and their Impact on Job Performance from the Female Students' Point of View and Proposals for Development




Effective communication skills, job performance, proposals


Objectives: The study aims to reveal the degree of the practice of effective communication skills by faculty members at the University of Hail - Al-Shamli branch and their impact on job performance, and identify proposals for developing effective communication skills.

Methods: To achieve the objectives of the study, the quantitative descriptive approach was used, by preparing a questionnaire consisting of (45) items and an open question. The questionnaire was distributed among a sample of (263) female students from the University of Hail - Al-Shamli branch. The sample accounted for 45% of the total community, which reached (580) female students.

Results: After analyzing mean values and standard deviations, it was determined that faculty members' practice of effective communication skills, as perceived by female students, was at a moderate level. Further statistical tests, including two-way analysis of variance and Scheffe post-comparison tests, revealed no significant differences in communication skill practice based on academic year, but significant differences were found based on specialization, with a preference for scientific specialization. Additionally, when examining proposals to enhance faculty members' communication skills and their impact on job performance, the most frequently suggested approach was the creation of educational programs, bulletins, and audio-visual/print media resources for faculty members.

Conclusions: Develop training programs to develop effective communication skills among faculty members at universities, and hold workshops aimed at introducing faculty members to the importance of effective communication skills in the educational process.
