In this study, 164 English language students were asked to participate in the pre-test, treatment, and post-test processes, while the treatments for the IDC group were developed in the form of interest-creation-habit triple loops. The results represented that IDC hybrid instruction was more effective in strengthening digital information literacy and personal knowledge management; and the IDC hybrid group outperformed the non-IDC hybrid group in terms of self-directed learning skills. These findings also revealed that to develop self-directed learning in critical readers, in addition to digital skills and how to manage and apply acquired knowledge, learning instructions (i.e., interest-creation-habit loops) have been effective. ... mehr
