Effective Behavior of EFL Teachers as Perceived by Undergraduate Students in Indonesia
Said, Mashadi
English Language Teaching, v10 n10 p50-62 2017
This study attempts to explore the effective behaviors of teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL) as perceived by undergraduate students in Indonesia. For this purpose, a questionnaire was administered to 270 Indonesian undergraduate students. The questionnaire addressed seven dimensions of EFL teachers' behavior, which are the following: encouraging contact between students and teachers; developing reciprocity and cooperation among students; encouraging active learning; giving prompt feedback; emphasizing time on tasks; communicating high expectations; and respecting diversity in talents and ways of learning. Overall, the students perceived that the EFL teachers' behavior that most significantly promotes effective learning is the provision of a learning situation in which students will be optimally engaged in learning. These findings call for the implementation of the seven fundamental principles with their accompanying items for effective teaching and learning in undergraduate education in Indonesia.
