The communication skills for a professor have to be of highest levels. One cannot compromise on that at any cost. Below are the reasons:How you explainYour teaching quality is determined by - how effectively you can explain the concept or a particular idea. If you get confused at any point of time, you will not be able to show the students the real picture. Your explanations though majorly depend on your knowledge but equally on - how well you can explain them.How you connect
Communication skill is the inevitable for all types of professionals whether you are in teaching at top most level or not, moreover job of a professor is highly extrovert where one has to deliver the lecture in proper manner so the content of topic must be delivered to the students. First of all one has to understand the definition of communication skill sometime we do commit mistake in understanding such skill and do take a course of English, Japanese, french, Hindi etc and then start to claim I am good in communication which is not true. Communication skill is required everywhere not only in profession even in the relationship also otherwise people undergo the confusions and distance due to the poor communication.
So forget to say that communication is required only at top level of job and rest remains out of such skill is not justified. As far as the categorization of skill is concerned one has to learn the specific domain where you are doing the job and you need to communicate yourself to the subject first otherwise how you will ingest and understand the ingredients and deliver the theme to your students.
Certain defined modules are important to improve your communication skill:
Conducive environment: You have to create the healthy and comfortable atmosphere in your classroom where you can take an engaged class. engaged class means the delivery and the receptiveness of students make your class bilateral it means students are understanding hundred percent of your topic through your communication skill.
Good orator and listener: You are a good orator it is fine but your listening skill is equally important otherwise how you will respond to your students query that must be primacy in your academic profession.
Be objective: Until and unless setting the objectives of your lecture you can not make it possible in terms of meaningful interaction. So must define the objectives as per the demand of course.
Avoid thinking other question while taking the information of your first question which will leave the bad reputation inside and outside the class that this professor is not willing to understand my problem and ignored my question by taking or raising other question.
Avoid stereotyping: Never be influenced with glamour, dressing sense, gender type, or anything else which make you stereotype avoid it and just explain the things irrespective of the personal interest.

The communication skills are integral part of the personality of a person. Let me tell you the communication skills are very important for any profession.

The common communication skills are ;Verbal communication skills; how to speak and waht to speak, as a professor has to take lectures on regular basis. Therfore, he has to communicate his opnions in effective and simple way to make the students understand. Non Verbal communication skills: here you do not speak a single word, your body language conveys the meaning. Sometimes a professor has to control the class by conveying the meaning from eyes or using body language.Listening skills; a professor has to be a patient listener. He has to understand the question or opinion of students, colleages and superiors, understand it, analyze it and then answer. The answer should be meaningful and conveyed in few words. The professor may answer the queries using verbal communication skills and body gesture also.
