A PHENOMENOLOGICAL STUDY OF THREE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS’ EXPERIENCES IN PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Yustinus Calvin Gai Mali

Abstract


Researchers in the past have explored practices
of Project Based Learning (PBL) in various educational
contexts. Nevertheless, previous studies that examine
project-based learning in English as a Foreign Language
(EFL) contexts are still limited in numbers particularly
through the eyes of Indonesian university students. This
study aims to look into meanings of PBL in learning
Second Language Acquisition (SLA) at English Language
Education Program, Dunia University Indonesia. The
study specifically described how three students in the
class felt about PBL as implemented in two main
classroom projects, how they experienced doing it, and
how they provided meaning to it. The students’
experiences were recalled through an in-depth
phenomenological interview. The results of the study
were the experiences in the form of narratives and my
interpretation of emerging themes in the narratives as the
meanings of PBL in learning SLA. The study appeared to
continue positive trends of PBL practices in English
language teaching and learning specifically in content-
based instructions.
