讲座提要:

In recent years, increasing attention has been given to the issue of vocabulary acquisition in research and pedagogy of Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (TCFL). A growing body of studies on a wide range of issues such as lexical chunking, collocation and productive use of vocabulary by CFL learners has been contributed to the TCFL literature. Yet relatively little is known about how learners acquire vocabulary productively beyond the classroom instruction using computer-assisted vocabulary activities. The investigation into this question in the context of today’s digital era is significant to classroom instructors, material writers and curriculum designers, as the findings will provide more informed suggestions and guidance for them to provide more effective methods of vocabulary teaching and to help them design explicit vocabulary activities suitable for use on various digital platforms.

Taking advantage of the computer-assisted learning technology based on cognitive learning theory, data science and educational data mining, a number of researchers and education providers start exploring the possibilities of engaging learners on deeper levels and in a variety of ways using adaptive learning approach. Drawing on the design principles and research findings of adaptive learning and assessment in HarvardX (Rosen and Blink, 2017) and the current practices in this area, this study is an attempt to design an adaptive learning prototype that may speed up CFL learner’s Chinese vocabulary acquisition and individualize CFL learners' learning by helping them identify where they have challenges.

Based on existing online vocabulary quizzes and students’ assignments of a particular course, examples of non-standard usage of vocabulary are first collected and analyzed with an aim to identify CFL learners’ challenging areas of vocabulary learning. On the basis of the analysis, a number of interactive and sequential vocabulary assessment sections are designed and deployed as homework via the course’s LMS page. These adaptive sections feature quick adaptive feedback, more supportive information for struggling learners, ability to pinpoint and address common mistakes, and the capacity to collectanalytic data. By analyzing learners’ performances and feedback, the initial evaluation reveals that the adaptive prototype has great potential to improve CFL learners’ effectiveness and achievements in vocabulary learning in comparison to non-adaptive online learning approach. Limitations and future improvement are also reported in the discussion.
