BALEAP PIM: From EAP Teacher to EAP Educator

12th November 2022 @ 9:30am - 4:30pm

£20.00 – £150.00

SAVE THE DATE! 12 November 2022 at the University of Sheffield

This PIM will focus on the transition from EAP Teacher to EAP Teacher Educator. Although there is support available to those transitioning into EAP from more general English teaching, very little support is available to those EAP practitioners working with other teachers. Working with other teachers may involve observing other teachers on a summer school, preparing and delivering a series of workshops as part of a teacher education programme or mentoring and supporting teachers new to EAP.

This PIM will provide a space to share ideas and best practice including approaches and methods to Teacher Education. This PIM will be of interest to Senior Teachers, DOSs, Teacher Trainers and Educators and indeed anyone who works with or is planning to work with other teachers.

Delivery

The event will be delivered in-person with some plenaries and workshops live-streamed.

Plenary Speakers

Helen Donaghue (Senior Lecturer Learning Enhancement and Academic Development at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh) and Marion Heron (Associate Professor in Educational Linguistics at University of Surrey) will deliver a lecture on Post Observation Feedback Literacy

One of the most common and potentially useful ways of enhancing teachers’ practice (and therefore students’ learning) is observation and feedback. Despite the importance and frequency of observations in EAP teacher education, scant attention, if any, is paid to the post observation feedback stage where teachers, often new to EAP, receive feedback on their teaching. How (or if) teachers then enact this feedback in their teaching is also under-researched. Drawing on Carless and Winstone’s (2020) framework of feedback literacy, this presentation argues for adopting an educator (i.e. observer) and teacher (i.e. observed) feedback literacies perspective on assessed and formative post observation feedback. Drawing on examples from research data, we exemplify how feedback literacy can influence what feedback is more likely to be enacted by the participant. We also show how the three dimensions of feedback literacy – design, relational and pragmatic –  are highly applicable to different stages of the observation process and how we might leverage this model to better support EAP teachers.

Call for Proposals

We welcome proposals from teachers, teacher trainers, teacher educators, lecturers and tutors who have experience of or an interest in working with or supporting EAP teachers. We are particularly interested in papers giving participants a clear takeaway which can be applied in a variety of contexts.

We welcome papers in a variety of formats (including 30-minute presentations with 10 minutes for Q&A, 40-minute workshops and poster presentations) relating to the theme of supporting and working with other teachers. We also welcome 20-minute recorded presentations and 40-minute, live-streamed workshops from colleagues who cannot attend the event. Presentations can be individual or joint.

Areas of relevance include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Becoming an EAP teacher trainer/educator
  • Transitioning from General English teacher trainer to EAP educator
  • Observation and feedback
  • Mentoring and coaching
  • Planning and delivering workshops
  • Designing teacher education programmes
  • Formative and summative assessment of teachers
  • Creating online content for teachers
  • Current practice and future directions

The deadline for submtiting a proposal was 16 September. The organising committee have received a good range of papers and are now going through a selection process. The programme of the exciting event will be announced soon!.
