Goldsmiths, University of London has hosted the November 2019 BALEAP PIM
The Future of EAP: Adapt or Die?
As the English Language Centre at Goldsmiths, University of London celebrates 30 years of EAP activity, this PIM aims to look at the future of EAP and what the likely issues and practitioner responses will be in the next 30 years.
The challenges and opportunities are many. From Higher Education expectations to the views of the teaching profession, from changing student expectations to evolving perceptions of ‘the classroom’, from artificial intelligence to the academic skills agenda, what are the key factors that are shaping our destiny and how are we to respond?
Our keynote speaker is Emeritus Professor Joan Turner. Her presentation is entitled: EAP in the 21st century: institutional representations; pedagogical challenges in the digital age; transnational English.
