Abstract

The growth of educational research as one of scientific research has come to the state where the researchers in this field make their studies to generate a model for better educational practices. One of the most outstanding model designs is Research and Development (R&D) Method by Borg & Gall (1983), nevertheless, the widely use of this method prompts a question whether it is the only proper method in educational research.  This paper is aimed to discuss in depth the R&D Method in some educational research by comparing the simplified steps and characteristics in those research. This paper also provides some alternatives of model design for educational research in which the usage and its implementation are adjusted in accordance to the research context and researchers characteristics.

Abstract

This research is to know teachers’ perceptions on methods of teaching English for classes with mixed-English proficiency students: primary, elementary, intermediate, and advance levels.  These methods were some differentiated instructions taught in training to teachers of English as a community service activity which conducted to the teachers of English at Lembaga Bahasa (LB) Bagus Palembang. In this training, the participants learned the methods because they did not get the knowledge in their pre-service teacher training. They only had teaching methods for classes with one level of English proficiency. After they completed the training, they were monitored during the methods application in order to find their perceptions on teaching such class. The data were gathered via observations in the class during the monitoring. The observation data were, then, matched to the data from semi-structured interviews to know the participants’ perception on the methods in their classes.  The research revealed that the methods were proven to increase students’ participation in class with notification to high proficiency ones. However, it was not possible to suggest other best practices for dealing with all students in that class because not all practices work in a mixed-English proficiency class.

Abstract

This study detailed the impacts of English on products branding from customers’ point of view. It was limited in food, electronics, and garment as the three most traded products in Palembang city as one of the five biggest trading cities in Indonesia. Using a qualitative method with individual and focus group interviews for data collecting techniques, there were 15 participants involved in individual interviews and 30 participants in a focus group interview. Due to physical restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic era, the interviews were conducted online with semi-structured interview questions. The collected data were analysed using thematic analysis to unveil customers’ perception in the terms of popularity, purchasing interest, sales and revenue, business competition, curiosity, vocabulary, a symbol of modernity, and prestige toward products with English branding. It was revealed that the use of English on product branding highly impacted popularity, business competition, buyers’ curiosity, vocabulary, and the symbol of modernity of the users of the object products. Interestingly, electronics products were not affected by the use of English branding on purchasing interest, sales and revenue, and prestige, whereas food and garment products were. The English branding impacted the prestige of the customers only for garment products. Therefore, it is recommendable that certain products make use of English labelling for better recognition and acceptability in public.
