Yabancı dil ve ikinci dil öğretiminde zorunlu uzaktan eğitim
Emergency remote education in foreign and second language teaching

Yunus Emre AKBANA [1] , Stefan RATHERT [2] , Reyhan AĞÇAM [3]


Bu çalışmada, Covid-19 salgını nedeniyle uygulanan zorunlu uzaktan eğitimin yabancı/ikinci dil öğretimi üzerindeki etkilerini konu alan araştırmaların incelenmesi amaçlanmıştır. Doküman analizi yöntemi ile 1 Ocak ve 28 Ekim 2020 tarihleri arasında yayımlanan çalışmalarda belirtilen araştırma bağlamları ile öne çıkan bulgular tanımlanmıştır. Araştırmanın bulguları, analiz edilen yayınların önemli bir bölümünün uygulayıcılar, yani okullar, hükümet yetkilileri ve eğitim kurumları tarafından sunulan raporlardan oluştuğunu ve yükseköğretim düzeyinin makalelerde en sık ele alınan eğitim bağlamı olduğunu ortaya çıkarmıştır. İncelenen yayınlar, zorunlu uzaktan eğitimin yabancı/ikinci dil öğretmenlerine yönelik kısıtlamadan çok olanak sağladığı ve hem öğretmenlerin hem de öğrencilerin devlet yetkililerinden, okullardan veya akranlarından yeterli destek almaları ve hâlihazırda edinilmiş dijital becerileri ile mevcut teknik altyapıdan yararlanmaları halinde bu süreçte karşılaşılan zorlukları fırsata çevirebileceği anlaşılmaktadır. Bulgular ayrıca, zorunlu uzaktan eğitimin ikinci/yabancı dil öğretiminde beraberinde getirdiği güçlükler ve fırsatların daha etkili bir şekilde anlaşılmasına olanak sağlamak üzere sınıflardan gelecek verilere dayalı araştırma boşluğunun bulunduğuna işaret etmektedir.
This study aims at tracing the effects of emergency remote education due to Covid-19 on foreign/second language teaching documented in research papers and reports. Employing document analysis, it identifies the research contexts and key findings reported in the studies published between 1 January and 28 October 2020. The findings indicate that a significant number of publications consist of reports presented by practitioners, i.e. schools, governmental authorities and educational foundations, and that the tertiary level is the most frequently covered context in the papers. The analysed publications report slightly more Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT)-driven affordances for teachers than constraints and suggest that both teachers and students are able to turn challenges of ERT into affordances when they receive sufficient support from governmental authorities, schools or peers and benefit from already acquired digital skills and technical infrastructure available. The findings also indicate a gap of research based on classroom data, which would more effectively contribute to an understanding of the challenges and affordances of ERT in language teaching.
