Project based assignments for pronunciation

Research on the flipped classroom in language teaching has had overwhelming support from educators across the globe. When we flip our classes, students report more engagement and satisfaction with their learning. Although the studies and resources on flipped learning are now abundant in ELT, it can be challenging for teachers to find the time and materials needed to design a flipped course, particularly a flipped speaking or pronunciation-oriented course. Marie Webb will provide practical examples of flipped-classroom activities that lead up to two-project based assignments in an undergraduate-level speaking and pronunciation course.

Dr. Marie Webb has taught undergraduate and undergraduate speaking and pronunciation courses in the English for Multilingual Students program at UCSB and across a variety of other teaching contexts in California community colleges, Macau, China, Japan, and South Korea. Teaching pronunciation and speaking skills is one of her favorite areas of language learning and teaching. She is an avid supporter and user of flipped classroom instruction and technology enhanced language learning. She has conducted several research studies on the flipped classroom in ELT internationally and within the United States. Her 2016 CATESOL Journal publication with Dr. Evelyn Doman, “Does the Flipped Classroom Lead to Increased Gains on Learning Outcomes in ESL/EFL Contexts?” has been widely cited, and recent research in ELT on the flipped classroom has been based off their quasi-experimental study design. Webb and Doman found that students in flipped classrooms scored significantly higher on grammar SLO’s than their peers in control courses. Dr. Webb also conducted another flipped classroom study with Dr. Doman across three contexts in Macau, United States, and Columbia. Their 2020 study, “Impacts of Flipped Classrooms on Learner Attitudes Towards Technology Enhanced Language Learning” found that students across the multiple contexts more positively valued technology for language learning overtime in a flipped classroom
