Online Flipped Learning for Engineering Students


The integration of digital tools into language teaching has increased with the COVID-19 pandemic. In parallel, online learning has become popular, resulting in a substantial amount of online courses. In addition, nowadays, it is preferred over traditional face-to-face learning in emergency situations. All of this has led educators and researchers to explore ways to improve online learning. Online flipped learning is one of the teaching strategies that can be used in online courses. However, there is not enough study to examine how successful online flipped learning is. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of online flipped learning on engineering students’ foreign language learning in terms of self-efficacy and anxiety levels. For this purpose, a course was designed based on online flipped learning to measure the impact of the teaching method. The course "Technical Writing & Communication" was for third-year engineering students. The design was based on students' watching the asynchronous lesson recordings before online course sessions. During live online sessions, students were required to participate in the lesson activities which were based on the video recordings. One-group pretest-posttest design was used in the study. There were a total of 30 engineering students who completed both the pretest and posttest. The findings showed that online flipped learning had a positive impact on self-efficacy and the level of anxiety in foreign language learning. In conclusion, online flipped learning is an effective teaching method to teach a foreign language in an online setting.
