The Specificity of Pedagogies – how should the EAP profession react to the many ways our students are being taught in university?

The INTO Centre, University of Exeter, is delighted to be hosting a BALEAP Professional Issues Meeting at the University’s Streatham Campus on the 10th June 2017.

Deadline for proposals: 15th May

This PIM hopes to address and clarify how EAP professionals working in universities might react to changes in ways in which their students are being taught and assessed. Recent work in this area has shown that different disciplines are working in very different ways with their students. It is now possible to find students working on reflective journals and blogs (both written and spoken), leading seminars, working in teams in a problem based learning environment, dealing with the challenges of flipped classrooms, contributing to wikis on VLEs, participating in small scale research leading to summative research reports, and contributing to task-based group work. Some of the assessment work being done focuses not only on the display of knowledge but also on the quality of intellectual analysis and a response to an employability agenda. Much of this may be very unfamiliar to our students and the support required of EAP professionals, both in taught pre-course EAP curricula and in insessional support, is a key element of our students’ success.
The PIM will provide an opportunity for colleagues to share their experiences of supporting international students in different pedagogical contexts, and of the challenges they face and the interventions they have developed.
