PIM: Challenges and Tensions in Materials Design for English for Academic Purposes

1st November 2024 @ 9:30am - 4:30pm

£100.00 – £150.00


The University of Portsmouth invites you to attend our November 2024 PIM that will focus on the  Challenges and Tensions in Materials Design for English for Academic Purposes. This PIM will be held on our university campus in the beautiful south, in the historic seaside city of Portsmouth.


At our PIM we will look to explore the challenges and tensions faced by practitioners  in designing effective and appropriate materials for English for Academic Purposes programmes. Challenges faced by materials designers include the tension between disciplinary authenticity of the content and accessibility not only to students, but also to tutors, some of whom may have to ‘switch gears’ from general EFL to EAP in a short period of time. Resolving tensions such as these requires a fine balance and careful decision making.


Join us for a seaside retreat where we will explore these issues and other challenges faced by practitioners surrounding the design and impact of materials in EAP.
