Lecturers’ ability to teach and communicate ideas effectively in class can be influenced by various factors, including their skills in public speaking. Therefore, many new lecturers need this essential skill. Developing mastery of teaching materials and public speaking can increase the confidence of lecturers and ensure their ideas are conveyed effectively. Public speaking is recognized as an essential ability that lecturers must possess because public speaking is a type of verbal communication that involves a large group of people about a particular topic. The aim is to persuade, educate, inform, or explain something to specific individuals in certain settings. Therefore, in this case, a lecturer needs practical speaking skills, including attitudes and techniques that are qualified to convey messages, influence people, and motivate them. In this digital era, where communication is done chiefly online, different communication techniques are needed, such as choice of words, intonation, facial expressions, and gestures. Good presentation skills are also required, including visual aids such as slides with text, images, videos, and photos. Visualization helps convey ideas and enhances verbal communication with the audience’s imagination.
