PIM: Multimodality in EAP Contexts

3rd November 2023 @ 9:30am – 4:30pm

Heriot-Watt University is inviting you to an online PIM about Multimodality in EAP contexts.

Multimodality: “the investigation of diverse modes of communication and their expressions” (Bateman 2014).

What can multimodality mean in our context?

  • What is the impact of digital texts on academic and professional communication? How do we support students to read/write such texts?
  • What is the role of multimodal artefacts in EAP (e.g. posters, presentations, videos by students)
  • What is the value of a multimodal EAP pedagogy?
  • How can multimodal approaches help in widening participation in higher education?

Plenary speaker

Join us and plenary speaker Professor Arlene Archer, director of the Writing Centre at the University of Cape Town and convenor of the South African Multimodality in Education research group.
