Classroom Practice in English Classes Based on the Hiroshima University Campus Ubiquitous Project : Report IV
Tagashira, Kenji
This article provides an outline of the follow-up classroom practice in English classes based on the Hiroshima University Campus Ubiquitous Project. It presents the details of the teaching syllabus/procedures, teaching materials for WBT (Web-Based Training), and also a new evaluation system using TOEIC scores and students' evaluations for classroom practice. In this project, schedules are set up so that the same three teachers will take charge of the same English classes (Communication IB and Communication IIB) during the course of the whole year. The students are first-year students in the Department of Economics, and each class is conducted in the CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) classroom, as well as via an online network system. Based on the achievements and problems of the last few years' projects (see, Enokida, Maeda, Isoda, & Tagashira, 2006, 2007, 2008), some attempts are instigated to improve curriculum/lesson developments: using the same textbook during one year and WBT materials.
