Abstract

This study investigated flow experiences of EFL instructors in Turkey by focusing on absorption, work enjoyment, intrinsic work motivation, skills, activities, and time of the day through age, ethnicity, educational level, gender, sexual orientation, and years of experience variables. The study was conducted over a six-week period with 283 EFL instructors working 30 universities. The data were collected via an online survey consisting of three sections. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The results indicated that EFL instructors experience flow in language classes. The findings also showed that work-related flow can be predicted by skills, activities, time of the day, age, educational level, and years of experience. However, no significant relationship was found between flow and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation.
