Computer technology has been popular for teaching English as a foreign language in non-English speaking countries. This case study explored the way language instructors designed and implemented computer-based instruction so that students are engaged in English language learning. This study explored the beliefs, practices and perceptions of university faculty in integrating computer technology into English instruction. This research was conducted in English education program in Sanata Dharma University, Indonesia. Communicative language teaching, Engagement Theory, and learner-centered principles were used as the pillars for developing the theoretical framework. The researcher conducted interviews, observed the classroom situation, and reviewed teaching instruments. This study revealed that the instructors used the ideas of "relate, create, and donate"; in Engagement Theory to address the communicative language teaching principles in computer-enriched instruction. The implications for this study include the identification of effective strategies to establish computer integration into English language teaching. This study may assist English instructors and foreign language program leaders to develop better computer technology integration into language instruction.
