BALEAP/ALDinHE Joint One-day Conference (PIM) – Academic Literacies and EAP

24th November 2018

£100 – £150

Academic Literacies and EAP: Same or different?

The theme of the first event organised jointly by ALDinHE and BALEAP was 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.

Presentations included topics like the following:

  • 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
