This study aims to bridge the gaps in the extant literature on academic writing and yield insights into how research space is created by graduate students from the perspective of community of practice (CoP). In particular, this paper addressed what graduate students might encounter in terms of graduate students’ beliefs and attitudes toward academic writing and their multidimensional engagement in the academic community. Four graduate students were involved in the study via homogeneous sampling from four universities in Taiwan. To obtain rich data, semi-structured interviews were adopted, audio-recorded, transcribed, and re-constructed. The results highlighted graduate students’ needs for systematic training of research paper writing. The participants believe that they may benefit more from thorough academic training, whereas they found their academic writing training and writing proficiency insufficient. This study concludes with pedagogical implications for rigorous course design and training for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) writing professionals to improve the quality of EFL academic writing.</p> 2022-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 IJET (Indonesian Journal of English Teaching) Motivational Factors Affecting Undergraduate Students' Reading Interest 2022-08-01T13:27:06+00:00 Rena Rahmawati Anisa Mbali Amah Astriana Vidia Jerina Maya Rizki Amayasari <p>The purpose of this research is to find out factors that affect undergraduate students' lack of motivation in reading.

It is an innovative approach that is developed from the Communicative Approach. The concepts of TBL have proven successful in classrooms. In this study, the writer conducted a literature review of task-based learning in teaching English dealing with the benefits and problems in implementing this approach in Indonesia. This paper seeks to review Task-based Learning (TBL), covering the definition of 'task' and Task-based Learning (TBL), the characteristics and stages of TBL, the teacher and students' roles in Task-based Learning, and also the advantages and disadvantages of Task-based Learning. It also addresses the application, the benefits and problems of Task-based Learning in the sense of Indonesian EFL context. This will help educators and language teachers in Indonesia to attach more importance to the contextual differences when applying Task-based Learning in Indonesia.</p> 2022-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 IJET (Indonesian Journal of English Teaching) Online Learning at Secondary Schools: Listening to Pre-Service Teachers In Their Teaching Practices 2022-07-31T16:03:19+00:00 Luluk Isnainiyah Fitriah <p>Coronavirus has altered how students are educated and how teachers conduct themselves in the classroom.

Therefore, this study investigates the cases of three active debaters under the learning community in students' activity at University. The findings have focused more on how they subjectively position themselves during the learning process of becoming a good debater in the debating Community. First, they agree that the existence of mentors has created a significant difference in the growth and betterment of debater in the learning community. Second, assessment has a huge role to become the extrinsic exposure, the evaluative measurement, as well as raising up learning motivation. Third, during the learning process of becoming a good debater, autonomy can be seen as either individualistic or not depends on each individual to positioned the urge of learning.</h1> 2022-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 IJET (Indonesian Journal of English Teaching) Evaluative Analysis On Mooc With Lms Based To Improve English Teachers’ Teaching Competences 2022-07-31T15:41:59+00:00 SITI NURUL HIDAYAH <p>In the 5th Industrial Revolution era, English teaching method blended with technology and information-based skills will be more noteworthy to improve English teachers’ teaching aptitudes.
