  • Factors Influencing Academic Writing Behaviour Among Undergraduates

    • Authors: Faizah Mohamad; Nadia Anuar, Nor Shidrah Mat Daud
      Abstract: Writing is a crucial skill for university students to succeed in the current content-driven era. However, many students are reported to be intimidated by writing as they find the task daunting, thus affecting their participation in writing activities. Students also rarely show encouraging writing behaviour, which leads to unsatisfactory written work. This study aimed to examine factors that contribute to their writing behaviour. A quantitative research method by means of a survey design was employed for data collection. A 43-item questionnaire was distributed randomly using a Google Form link to 84 undergraduate students who were undertaking various fields of study at a public university. Section A of the questionnaire queries the students’ demographic profile, whereas Section B, C, and D seek responses on their psychological state, confidence, and attitudes, respectively. Section E queries their writing behaviour. Descriptive analysis was performed on each factor, and Pearson’s correlation was used to analyse the relationship between the factors and the students’ writing behaviour. Finally, a stepwise multiple regression was employed to discover the factor most contributing to the students’ writing behaviour. The findings indicate that confidence and attitude factors have a significant relationship with the students’ writing behaviour, but the relationship between psychological state factors and writing behaviour was not significant. This finding enhances the understanding of the essentiality of attitude in facilitating students’ writing mastery.

  • Challenges Faced by EFL Teachers and Learners in Providing and Receiving
           Online Corrective Feedback on Writing Assignments

    • Authors: Norah D. Alsahli; Zilal Meccawy
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted most sectors on a global scale. In most places around the world, education has transitioned to a fully online mode. During the pandemic, online learning was the most appropriate alternative for continuing education, particularly at the tertiary level, though this transition was not without inherited challenges. A mixed-methods study investigated English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers’ and students’ attitudes towards and beliefs surrounding the use of online corrective feedback on Blackboard, with a qualitative component designed to explore the challenges. The aim of this part of the study was to determine the challenges faced by EFL teachers and learners when using Blackboard (LMS) to provide and receive online corrective feedback on writing assignments. Responses to an open-ended question in a survey-based questionnaire of 130 EFL teachers and 219 EFL learners in a Saudi university’s Preparatory Year Program (PYP) were analyzed using thematic analysis, the data from which revealed that the main obstacles for EFL instructors and learners were related to language proficiency, technical and communication challenges, and the amount of time and effort required. This study also found that another challenge was the disparity between teachers and students regarding perceptions of Online Corrective Feedback (OCF), which must be taken into consideration in order to make online learning effective in improving EFL students’ writing skills in an EFL context.

  • ESL Learners’ Perceptions of Online Learning in a Tertiary Institute

    • Authors: Shereen Shamala Benjamin Jeyaraja; Mahendran Maniam
      Abstract: The study explores how learners view the benefits and challenges faced in implementing online learning in ESL classrooms. 53 learners from a private university in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, were selected to be participants. An adapted questionnaire from a previous study was used to collect data via the Google form. This study employs a quantitative methodology, and the SPSS software was used to analyse the data collected. The findings showed that most learners acknowledged that the introduction of online learning caused obstacles for them. The results reflected learners' unbiased views on the benefits of integrating online learning into ESL institutions. The learners also have difficulty in learning online, and lecturers need to adapt their teaching methods and techniques to address this issue. The study recommends that online learning requires improved resources and technological support from the institution's management.

  • A Narrative Inquiry into an ESL Teacher’s Professional Development:
           Problems and Recommendations

    • Authors: Liping Wei; Youna Chen
      Abstract: Using narrative inquiry, this study investigates an ESL teacher’s experience of professional development, her perspectives of its effectiveness, the challenges encountered, and the changes in teacher knowledge and teaching practices. The focus is on how the teacher participant perceives the problems in professional development and how professional development can best address teachers’ needs in educating ELLs. The problems found to impede teachers from gaining the most from professional development include: (a) failure to tailor to the specific needs of ESL students; (b) neglect of the psychological and emotional well-being of ESL students; (c) lack of empathy for ESL students, (d) lack of content-specific ELL teacher professional development; and (e) professional development not well-attended. Accordingly, recommendations are put forward to render ESL teacher professional development more effective. It is anticipated that this study will provide important insights into how to construct positive professional development that benefits teachers and ESL students to the largest possible degree.
