Details This study focuses on the relationship between learning engagement and group work in the EFL classroom. Learning engagement was measured with Short Flow State Scale developed by Jackson, Martin, & Eklund (2008). In addition, we tested the potential utility of inter-personal synchrony of brain activities measured by ultra-small near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a quantitative measurement for the learning engagement in group work.
