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.
The event will be delivered in-person with some plenaries and workshops live-streamed.
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:
Proposals of no more than 250 words can be submitted via an online submission form, the deadline for which is 16 September.
