Keywords:Classroom Interactions, English Lecturer and Students, Patterns Of Interaction, Online Teaching and Learning
Many researchers have investigated classroom interactions due to their importance showed in online teaching and learning. However, classroom interactions in online learning are still not done much. This research was conducted using a qualitative approach to 1 lecturer and 24 students at one of the universities in Garut. Data were collected using observations and recordings of the teaching and learning process following the frameworks of Allwright and Bailey (1991) on Classroom Interactions and Sinclair and Coulthard (1975) on the pattern of Classroom Interactions (IRF). The finding shows that the pattern mostly used by the lecturer was teacher initiation, student response, and teacher follow-up (IRF). Thus, in the IRF moves pattern, the teacher follows up on the
evaluation more and asks students to clarify. It can be concluded that the
exchange process between lecturer and students is well established.
