Presentation title
Using DIY Virtual Tours to Promote Student-centred Learning in Foreign Language Classes
Presentation abstract
The Covid-19 pandemic has raised significant challenges for the higher education community worldwide. A particular challenge has been the urgent and unexpected request for previously face-to-face university courses to be taught online. Online teaching and learning imply a certain pedagogical content knowledge, mainly related to designing and organising for better learning experiences and creating distinctive learning environments, with the help of digital technologies. This study proposes an online learning module that is fully developed by students to promote student-centred learning and learner engagement in online foreign language classes. This module allows students to design virtual tours on different topics based on the course syllabus through an oral presentation by using simple applications and software available online such as Kapwing and Filmora 9. Through this module, students are able to design the learning content for different topics. A focus-group interview was conducted after the implementation of this new learning method at the end of the semester and the findings of the thematic analysis show that the majority were satisfied with this Student-centred learning approach and they were feeling interested and motivated as the oral presentation practice and recording improved their pronunciation and confidence in speaking a foreign language.
