Resumen

La enseñanza de la escritura a estudiantes de inglés como lengua extranjera (EFL) gira en torno al desarrollo de una competencia lingüística y comunicativa. Al hacerlo, los profesores de inglés en general se enfrentan a dificultades pedagógicas que han resultado en desafíos de enseñanza. Este estudio exploratorio busca identificar los desafíos que enfrentan los profesores ecuatorianos al enseñar escritura a estudiantes universitarios. Mediante entrevistas estructuradas, se recopilaron datos de diez profesores de inglés que trabajan en diferentes universidades públicas de Ecuador. A través de un análisis descriptivo, los investigadores pudieron identificar los factores relacionados con los estudiantes y los profesores que hacen que la enseñanza de la escritura sea un desafío para los maestros. Los factores relacionados con los estudiantes incluyen la competencia en el idioma inglés, la interferencia del idioma español y la falta de motivación de los estudiantes para escribir en inglés; mientras que los factores relacionados con el profesor incluyen las  prácticas de enseñanza. Además, los resultados de esta investigación pueden ser útiles para que los profesores y administradores mejoren la enseñanza de la escritura en sus  respectivas instituciones.
