Abstract

This project has two aims: (i) to develop technology-enhanced learning at the “frontier level” by integrating state-of-the-art digital education technologies with experiential learning involving employers and community partners and (ii) to evaluate the extent to which flipped blended learning instruction can enhance student learning when compared to more traditional delivery modes. During phase 1, we propose to develop e-learning materials in the form of instructional videos and interactive online exercises connected with real-world case studies to train our students for workplace communication. During phase 2, we will assess the effectiveness of flipped blended learning approaches in the teaching of English for professional communication using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods for triangulation purposes. Such methods would include e-learning engagement metrics, student surveys, focus interviews and classroom interaction analysis. The outcomes from this project could not only contribute to enhancing Lingnan’s capabilities in digital education but also provide much-needed insight into the strengths and weaknesses of flipped blended learning as well as on the cultural and institutional constraints faced during its implementation.
