Gusti Nur HAFIFAH [1] , Gunadi Harry SULISTYO [2]


The use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in English Language Teaching (ELT) in higher education settings in Indonesia is still under research. This is a correlational study that investigates teachers’ knowledge, experiences, ICT literacy levels, and to what extent they integrate ICTs in ELT. Numbers of 280 English lecturers of different universities in Indonesia completed the online questionnaires that are distributed through emails and social media messengers during December 2018. The result shows that more than 60 % of the respondents’ ICT literacy levels are above average and they frequently use ICT in their daily teaching, although they still face problems in internet facility and lack of ICT training. The study also reveals that there is a significant correlation among teachers’ ICT literacy levels with their training experiences, internet frequency usage, and ICTs integration in language teaching. The more frequent teachers implement the ICTs, the more literate they will become. Training experiences surely generate teachers’ ICT literacy. The majority of English lecturers in Indonesia are ICT literate and ready to integrate their ICT skills in their teaching-learning activities. More frequent training and stronger policy support of ICT facilities from the institution and government would be advantageous to encourage greater ICT integration in education, especially in ELT.
