Made Dama Yanti

Abstract


The COVID-19 pandemic forces academic institutions in Indonesia to implement online learning. As the result, teachers must prepare online learning strategy that can build students’ self-directed learning. This study aimed at exploring the teacher's perception on self-directed learning, the activities assigned in the online learning, and the components of self-directed learning in the activities.  SMAN 5 Denpasar was chosen as the setting with an English teacher as the subject.  This study used embedded mixed method approach with self-rated questionnaire, observation table, and classification table as the data collection instruments. The findings indicated that the teacher perceived herself knowledgeable about and in implementing Self-Directed Learning. The teacher conducted the learning process in three parts, including pre-activity, whist activity, and post-activity. However, there were only three components of Self-Directed Learning that were being included in the activities. Therefore, more effective and attractive learning activities are needed.
