—In this study, the researchers examined the
relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and teaching
effectiveness among lecturers at Universiti Teknologi MARA
(UiTM), Puncak Alam, Selangor. The participants consisted of
155 lecturers working at UiTM, Puncak Alam, Selangor. The
respondents were randomly selected and the data were
gathered through the distribution of questionnaires. Descriptive
statistics showed that there were more female than male faculty
members and majority of them were from the Faculty of Office
Management and Technology. The study found that there was a
positive and significant relationship between overall EI skills
and overall teaching effectiveness. Lecturers with high EI were
found to have high self-confidence and were more committed
towards their job. In conclusion, the lecturers needed to learn,
master and practice EI skills in identifying their strengths, and
weaknesses in order to maximize teacher-student interaction.
