Title : Subject Content-based Approach in Teaching English for IT Students
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

This paper introduces a novel approach; called Subject Content based Approach (SCA), to design the English curriculum for IT students at Phu Yen University (PYU). Our approach adopted three prototypes of Content-Based Instruction model (CBI) used to teach foreign language including Theme-based instruction, Sheltered instruction and Adjunct instruction. Content instructors are required to utilize Group-based flipped classroom model to perform our curriculum. Course contents relate to academic subjects, language’s requirements for IT profession and current trends in IT. Most topics are selected openly from both textbook and online courses in Computer Science such as Coursera, Open University and IBM. Since 2016, we have applied SCA to teach for full time undergraduates who either haven’t got a job or already have jobs at PYU. The results show that the implementation of SCA motivated and enhanced student’s self-study attitude about learning English and achieved higher scores on exams. That benefits learners in term of learning English for academic purposes and their future careers.
