BALEAP PIM: Speaking

9th June 2018


For BALEAP members, this event is discounted to £75. Please log in with an account that holds an up-to-date membership and then scroll down to book your tickets.

INTO Newcastle University invites you to explore the changing role of speaking skills in a university setting.

The importance of speaking skills in academic study has risen significantly in recent years. A skim through any university module catalogue reveals a widespread integration of speaking skills in learning and assessment across the curriculum. This change necessarily creates a significant challenge for students and tutors alike.
The purpose of this PIM is to consider how best to identify and manage the needs of international students in the development, support and assessment of speaking skills in our classrooms.
Proposals are welcomed from all areas, including but not limited to….

  • Speaking skill development on preparatory programmes
  • In-sessional support
  • Perspectives from faculty on international students’ speaking skills
  • Oral presentations skills – development and assessment
  • Development of interactional competence
  • Assessment criteria design
  • Research-informed curriculum/assessment design
  • Corpus research and curriculum design
  • Supervision interactions
  • Examiner-candidate interaction
  • Preparation for specialism selection interviews (medicine, dentistry etc.)

Deadline for proposals: 15th April 2018

A proposal form and further details of the presentation options will be made available here and announced on the BALEAP email list.
