BALEAP Conference: Exploring pedagogical approaches in EAP teaching

6th April 2021 @ 12:00am - 10th April 2021 @ 11:59pm

English for Academic study at the University of Glasgow proudly hosted the BALEAP 2021 Conference, which ran in the week commencing 5th April, with an opening on Tuesday  the 6th April to Saturday the 10th.

Building on the 2019 Leeds conference theme (the practitioner), the organisers aimed to provide a forum to explore pedagogies for teaching EAP in different contexts, at different levels, face to face and online, and for EAP teacher development.

Some of the questions the conference explored include:

  • What does teaching EAP involve and how do we research it?
  • What does it mean to teach EAP in different contexts?
  • Have we got a shared understanding of this, if indeed this is possible?
  • Does EAP have a signature pedagogy?
  • How do we support teachers in their development?
  • How do we enhance and assure quality in EAP teaching?
  • How do our pedagogies inform and respond to current issues in higher education, such as the increasing attention on teaching, transnational education and massification and use of technologies?

The conference features a range of events including those for the new BALEAP SIGs, distinguished international plenary speakers, panel discussions and symposia, individual paper and poster presentations, workshops, lightening talks, BALEAP’s signature Pecha Kucha session and other informal networking events.

All the abstracts can be found in the BALEAP Glasgow 2021 Programme.

Selected talks are shared via the playlist:
