ABSTRACT

This paper aims at conducting meta-analysis in order to understand the features and trends of researches on Korea’s T&I education field and to seek further improvements. To this end, the study analyzed 230 papers on T&I education published in three T&I academic journals. The analysis results are as follows: 1) the three journals had a similar number of papers on T&I education; 2) research trends consist of three topics - teaching(69.13%), learning(23.48%), and assessment(6.96%); 3) methodologically, case and survey studies were more active, while corpus-based, correlational, and theoretical studies were relatively inactive. The future direction for researches on T&I education is suggested as follows. Firstly, integrated trans-lingual T&I education studies are needed as opposed to the current trend of T&I education researches mostly focusing on Korean-English T&I education. Secondly, it is necessary to establish more systematic methodologies that consider learner's individual characteristics such as conducting aptitude test, verifying individual characteristics and competence, and assessing expertise of learners. Thirdly, cooperation with the clients in the market is required in order to develop more practical T&I education and assessment methodologies. Lastly, more effort should be put to establish T&I pedagogy as a subdiscipline of T&I studies in order to further revitalize theoretical researches on T&I education.
