Presentation title
Effects of online writing-up-research courses on English-majored students’ motivation: a survey at a university
Presentation abstract
It is an indisputable fact that conducting scientific research requires a great deal of effort. Besides, research writing skills are compulsory for undergraduate students to master so that they are competitive in labor market. Recently, due to social distancing, which learners have been exposed to distance learning in hundreds of countries, the undergraduates have found acquiring in-depth knowledge of how to undertake scientific papers in online classes more challenging than in traditional ones. This study aims to determine how juniors’ and seniors’ motivation were affected when they anticipated virtual courses of research writing in a foreign languages department at a university. The study commenced when the impacts of distance learning on students’ impetus were theoretically classified into two groups, external group and the internal. Six factors including assessment practices, social influences, instructional materials, anxiety, goal orientation, and attitudes towards such a learning approach were taken into our considerations. Then, a survey was conducted with the participation of approximately 100 English-majored students. According to the findings, assessment practices and instructional materials gained no influences upon the students’ motivation because they remained unchanged regardless of which kind of learning approaches. The undergraduates’ inclination was externally affected by social factors such as former students’ beliefs, peer influences, and home supports. Regarding internal factors, goal orientation had a profound impact on students’ impetus.
