Video Resources in a Flipped Language Classroom: An Experience of Using Videos to Flip a Mandarin Teaching Module
In this study, the author used the Flipped Classroom (FC) approach in one Mandarin teaching module with three types of self-produced videos as pre-class learning material. These videos covered grammar rules, usage of vocabulary, and explanation of texts. The paper first briefly explains the rationale of using such teaching videos. To investigate students' perceptions of using those teaching videos in FC, their feedback and video-viewing records were collected and discussed. The findings reveal that, although not every student used video materials, those who used them favoured grammar videos. To improve student engagement and interactivity of pre-class activities in FC, the author suggests that some pedagogical interventions could be applied in future FC approaches.
