At present, loose-leaf teaching materials are attracting more and more attention in higher vocational institutions and have become a hot topic now. However, since the development of loose-leaf teaching materials is still in its beginning and exploratory stage, the examples of loose-leaf teaching materials for specialized courses are very hard to find. In fact, there is little research and application of how teaching objectives, content structure, teaching methods and teaching effectiveness reflect the original intention of loose-leaf teaching materials, especially there is little empirical evidence and reporting on teaching effectiveness. In this paper, we adopt the concept of outcome-based teaching model and take “Check-in” in Professional English for Hotel Staff course as an example to demonstrate the development and design of loose-leaf teaching materials and their features of career guidance, brevity and clarity, simplicity and practicality, real time and flexibility. By comparing the fourth semester exam results of 125 students majoring in hotel management from the class of 2013 to the class of 2016, who used traditional hotel English textbook，with the fourth semester exam results of 112 students from the class of 2017 to the class of 2020, who used loose-leaf teaching materials of hotel English in a higher vocational college, the advantages of the “4Es” embodied in loose-leaf teaching materials, namely, easy to teach, easy to learn, easy to understand and easy to use, and their effectiveness are revealed. According to the current study and preliminary teaching results, the development of the loose-leaf textbook based on the concept of outcome-based teaching model has been effective.
