Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced education to switch from a face-to-face method to an online one. To date, many studies have been dedicated to investigating how education adapts to this new situation, but only a few focuses on gender-based participation, particularly within the Indonesian context. This study aimed to investigate (1) how students perform gender- based participation in the online English class during the Covid-19 pandemic; and (2) how students will perform gender-based participation in the online English class in a post-Covid-19 pandemic. This study employed the theory of gender and participation in education (Aguillon et al., 2020). This qualitative research involved 10 participants enrolling in an Islamic university. The data were collected through observations and interviews. The phenomenological perspective analyzed the collected data. This research revealed two major findings. First, male students participated more than female students in the language learning process. Moreover, male students offered more voluntary responses during the lecture. Second, based on the students' performance, it is predicted that students' future participation in post-Covid learning will be influenced by their preference for discussion topics and learning strategies.
