Enhancing English for Academic Purposes (EAP) learning and instruction through immersive and interactive XR experiences

Project description

This proposal is to develop XR scenarios for an English Language Institute (ELI) speaking class ELI 531 Language and Communication that will allow students to practice academic English skills in realistic social settings. Assessment of these outcomes and student progress in general will likely consist of ongoing student self-reflections, teacher feedback on recorded speech, and in-video quiz responses. With XR, students will receive scaffolding in the form of videos, text boxes, or narration superimposed on the scene to help them learn the grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and other skills necessary to be able to meet each learning objective.
