Research project description

EFL Reading in Three Indonesian Universities: Perspectives in Diverse Cultural Contexts

The purpose of the PhD research project is mainly to investigate what, in the perceptions of key stakeholder groups, constitutes an effective EFL reading program at English Departments in three universities in Malang, East Java Province, Indonesia. The three universities differ in terms of their student population, their cultural and religious backgrounds, and nature of the tertiary institutions and program. Hence, the researcher also discusses the findings in relation to different cultural and academic backgrounds in those universities. The research data are a variety of the participants’ responses collected from questionnaire, focus group interviews, individual interviews, and documentation.
