Enhancement of Student Learning Outcomes: Developing Pre-service and In-service English Teacher’s Corpus Literacy Using Flipped Learning Enhanced by Mobile Technologies

Despite the importance and popularity of corpus linguistics and its great potential in benefiting language teaching and learning, a corpus-based linguistic approach remains largely unknown to the majority of the professional teaching community. This project will identify gaps between corpus linguistic research and language pedagogy and come up with concrete solutions to solve authentic teaching/learning problems. This project proposes to bridge the gaps by developing pre-service English teachers’ corpus literacy using flipped learning enhanced by mobile technologies. A rich and user-friendly corpus-based teaching and learning website will be built first, then a flipped mobile training programme will be offered to both pre-service and in-service English teachers to help them develop a good corpus literacy and equip them with the skills to integrate a corpus-based approach into language classrooms. Finally, their achievement will be evaluated in real classroom teaching. This project makes use of corpus research findings at different linguistic levels, and has the potential to generate tangible pedagogical products that will benefit the large field of language education, as well as contribute significantly to the professional training of student English teachers from all three faculties by developing their corpus literacy. In addition, this project will help develop in students the four core competencies: positive personality, positive work attitude, cooperation and teamwork, and interpersonal skills. Finally, this project will demonstrate how flipped learning enhanced by mobile technologies can be used effectively to deliver subject knowledge, which will be beneficial to all disciplines at the university.
