Academic Literacies and EAP: Same or different?

We are pleased to invite you to the first event organised jointly by ALDinHE and BALEAP. Our theme is Academic Literacies and EAP: Same or different? The impetus for our topic stems from experience of EAP professionals increasingly being expected to teach home students and Learning Support professionals being expected to provide targeted support for international students. We believe that the two teaching specialisms may be gradually merging, and that, in any case, we have much to learn by sharing areas of contrast and overlap in our remits, roles, and practices.

We invite proposals which address the above theme, particularly those which refer to the following areas.

  • Defining and explaining (to our institutions?) EAP and Academic Literacies
  • What can Academic Literacies and EAP learn from each other?
  • What teaching skills are required?
  • Student needs and experience
  • Programme design
  • Evaluating impact
  • Who delivers – the same or different teams?
  • Working in collaboration with departments
  • Responding to the changing university environment
  • Where should we be sited within the university? What set-up is needed?
  • Critiquing the deficit model

Please send any questions to Mick Kavanagh: Queries regarding registration should be directed to
