EFL Students' Experiences in Learning "CALL" through Project Based Instructions
Mali, Yustinus Calvin Gai
TEFLIN Journal: A publication on the teaching and learning of English, v28 n2 p170-192 Jul 2017
Various initiatives led by Ministries of Education and related entities in many countries around the world have encouraged teachers not only to integrate technology in their teaching practices but also to employ various sound teaching methods that allow learners to be actively involved in the teaching and learning process. As a response to these issues, this qualitative study delves closely into students' perspectives on the implementation of Project Based Learning (PBL) activities in an Introduction to Computer Assisted Language Learning (ICALL) course. Thirty students participated in the study by submitting reflective notes that answer four questions concerning the implementation of PBL in the course. Approached through the lens of content analysis paradigms, the data analysis results showed the students' positive responses to the employment of PBL in exploring potential technology for language teaching and learning purposes. Implications for ICALL course designs particularly in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) higher education context and directions for further research were also discussed.
