在全球化時代訊息和資訊科技已成為每個人的必需品。訊息和資訊科技的快速發展使
媒體的形式從印刷轉移至電子形式的知識。本研究調查在全英語課程中研究生撰寫英文論
文時使用電子資源的使用情形。及對於使用電子資源來撰寫英語論文的看法,以及如何解
決他們的技術上以及語言上的困難。本研究採用質性為主量化為輔研究法,包括線上問、
現場觀察和半結構化訪談。六名在台灣南部一所大學就讀的研究生被招募為這項研究的參
與者。研究者發放了一份問卷作為初步調查,接下來研究者依據問卷結果進行半結構化訪
談和現場觀察。收集資料完成後,研究者使用內容分析法輔以敘述性統計進行分析。調查
結果顯示,參與學生對電子資源的使用有正向的看法。然而,研究生在使用電子資源過程
中也遇到了技術上和語言上的問題。儘管如此,他們可以通過個人嘗試解決、同儕合作、
使用各種的語言工具和指導教授的反饋來應對挑戰。這項研究建議大學和圖書館員及指導
教授根據不同狀況為研究生提供不同的協助,讓他們更了解如何在進行論文研究時使用電
子資料。
Rapid advancements in information and communication technology (ICT) have resulted in a fundamental shift away from printed to electronic forms of knowledge. The current study focuses on graduate students' use of electronic information resources (EIRs) during thesis research to meet the requirements in EMI programs. The study specifically aims to investigate graduate students' perceptions of using EIRs written in English, as well as the strategies they
adopt to tackle technical and language problems. This study uses a mixed-method, including an online questionnaire, an observation checklist, and a semi-structured interview. Six graduate students in humanities and education, studying at a university in southern Taiwan are recruited as the participants of this study. Results from the questionnaire as the preliminary information contribute to the qualitative data results, in addition to in-person observations and semi-structured interviews. After collecting data, the researcher analyzes the qualitative data using content analysis and validated with descriptive statistics. The overall findings reveal that students
have positive perceptions of EIRs’ utilization. However, students also encounter multiple technical and language problems in utilizing EIRs during their thesis research. Nonetheless, they managed to handle their challenges through personal attempts, peer collaborations, different language tools, and advisor’s feedback. This current study suggested the university and librarians to provide training for graduate students to utilize EIRs.
