Listening Competence among University Students.
Elias, Habibah; Pihie, Zaidatol Akmaliah Lope
University graduates should not only be good communicators, but also good listeners. Good listening skills are essential for effective communication yet these skills are often overlooked when communication is analyzed. In teaching and learning processes, good listening skills help students improve their learning and ensure quality teaching. A study was conducted on a group of 202 university students taking an educational management course as an elective. The findings from the study indicate that university students are lacking in listening skills. This implies that the students have not utilized their potential in learning and in their effort to accumulate knowledge and skills. In class, they may not pay attention well, which has repercussions on their achievement. In order to improve students' listening skills, universities can embark on a training program for students. Studies have shown that training in listening skills have enhanced students' ability to listen and their long-term achievement. (Contains 3 tables and 11 references.) (Author/RS)
