Research project description
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 will also discuss the findings in relation to different cultural and academic backgrounds in those universities.
The research data will be a variety of the participants’ responses collected from questionnaire, focus group interview, individual interview, and documentation. With the assistance of qualitative descriptions and statistical procedures, the various perspectives on an effective reading program will then be analysed with regard to diversity in research participants’ backgrounds. This will help the researcher discuss how an effective EFL reading program could be implemented in Indonesian universities.
