Abstract or Introduction

The main objective of this study is to investigate the teaching competencies of Yemeni university English teachers in terms of identifying the degree of practicing these competencies from the perspective of the teachers themselves, their students of English departments, and the chairmen of English departments with a view to designing a proposed training programme which aims at developing the teaching competencies of Yemeni university English teachers.

The study primarily adopted the descriptive design and the quantitative approach. The data were collected through a questionnaire which consisted of (73) teaching competencies distributed among five main domains: planning teaching; implementing teaching; using technology; human relations; and assessment, evaluation, and giving feedback. After making sure of its validity and reliability, it was administered to three Yemeni public universities (Sana’a University, Aden University, and Taiz University). The sample consisted of (49) Yemeni university English teachers, (590) students of level four, and (6) chairmen of English departments. The data collected were computed and analyzed using the Statistical Package of Social Sciences (SPSS) for Windows (version 17.0).

The study revealed that the degree of practicing Yemeni university English teachers for the teaching competencies is low. It also revealed that there were statistically significant differences in the means of practicing the teaching competencies by Yemeni university English teachers according to the variable of sample type (university English teachers, students, and chairmen of English departments) at the (0.05) level of significance. These significant differences were found in the means of the target sample responses between teachers and students on the one hand and between students and chairmen on the other hand. However, no statistically significant differences were found in the means of responses between teachers and chairmen or according to the variable of geography. Based on the study results, which highlighted the need of Yemeni university English teachers for training in teaching, a training programme was proposed. Besides, some recommendations to be considered to improve the teaching and learning process in the English departments of Yemeni universities and suggestions for further research were given.
