It is however observable that practicing quality assurance processes are more of mechanical procedures and processes which are forcefully thrust upon individuals though systematic documentary and supervisory approaches. The adherence to the processes has become dutiful requirements rather than willful compliances seen as inner obligations. While it is accepted that the practicing quality assurance processes are the base, it is suggested here that intangible aspects could be recognized and integrated in orde

6. APPLYING ACTION RESEARCH BY FOLLOWING FLIPPED CLASSROOM MODEL IN THE CONTEXT OF TEACHING ENGLISH LINGUISTICS

Authors: ANWAR MOURSSI , ZHIHONG WANG

Abstract: The traditional teaching model of English linguistics does not apply to the current college English major in China. Against the background, teachers should create the suitable ones in their context. Therefore, under the guidance of action research, it is suggested that an empirical study should be conducted in order to investigate the feasibility of using flipped classroom model in teaching English linguistics courses with a view to constructing its flipped classroom model and exploring the validity of corresponding teaching strategies. Findings of this study show that applying flipped classroom model helps to promote students learning abilities and comprehensive quality and improving teaching effects as well. This is to recommend that modern teaching methods characterized by information technology require teachers growth in a professional way.
