Learning to research might become a challenge for undergraduate students since it needs navigating skills on how they look and relook the current trends in particular area globally. Although this study is not a new endeavor in ELT contexts, there remains lack of empirical evidence how it was experienced by undergraduate students in an Indonesian EFL context during a collaborative research project. In response to this, this study aims to explore how the students’ learning experiences in conducting this collaborative project (e.g., researching and reporting the research project). Framed in exploratory case study the data is collected through a survey given to 107 student teachers and in-depth semi structured interview to four student teachers in an English education department which were then thematically analyzed. Finding and implications of the study are provided further in this paper.
