Abstract


This is a case study exploring the relationship between achievement in a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course, students’ perceptions of their e-learning environment, and their learning styles. The researcher manipulated a descriptive method using appropriate correlation coefficients to explore this relationship. The subjects were 25 female students who were taking a Web-based course in TEFL Methodology offered as part of a graduate program at the Faculty of Education at Beni Suef. Findings revealed a statistically positive correlation between achievement in the TEFL Methodology, perceptions of the digital learning environment, and the learning styles of the subjects. This relationship becomes greater in the case of the preferred learning environment (i.e., students’ perceptions of an ideal learning environment). The paper concludes with suggestions for further research based on the findings of this study.
