The next BALEAP event will take place on Saturday 24 March 2018 at the International Study and Language Institute, University of Reading.
We will be holding the BALEAP AGM during the day, but this is also an opportunity for you to join either a TEAP workshop or a parallel ResTES event free of charge. Although there is no fee for the day, lunch will be provided for all participants, so we ask you to register for your chosen event (ResTES or TEAP – both include the AGM). If you do not wish to join either of the workshops, but do want to attend the AGM, you are very welcome to do so, but please also register below. NB: You only need to register for one of the three events (TEAP + AGM, ResTES + AGM or simply AGM).

This is an opportunity to hear what is happening in the running of the organisation, ask questions and make your voice heard. Officer reports will be published before the meeting and the committee will take questions relating to these. We will also be discussing the introduction of BALEAP SIGs and how these should be structured and managed.
AGM agenda will be circulated via the BALEAP mailing list nearer the time.
This event is for those who are interested in the BALEAP Individual Accreditation Scheme (the TEAP Scheme). There will be parallel strands, with an introduction for those new to the Scheme and other activities for participants who have attended a TEAP workshop in the past.
The purpose of this ResTES event is to explore some of the methods and practical tools that are used for scholarship in EAP. The methods we have selected can be directly linked to the work of an EAP practitioner. They are practical and straight-forward to implement within normal teaching and/or assessment practices. Each session will last for 40 minutes with a five-minute comfort break, and be broadly split between a 20 minute overview of the method and 20 minutes for questions and discussion. Participants will be able to dip into the day for sessions that they feel are of particular relevance to their own scholarship interests, or attend the whole day to gain a better understanding of what each of the methods offer. No prior knowledge is required.
Further details of all events to follow – please also keep an eye on the mailing list.
