English for Academic Purposes in Higher Education - Opportunities and Challenges in a Changing Landscape.

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

Taking the UK as an example, this talk explores two key challenges in English for Academic Purposes. Firstly, it addresses the perceived dichotomy between English for General Academic Purposes and English for Specific Academic Purposes. It suggests an interdisciplinary approach with closer collaboration between schools while acknowledging students’ role in co-constructing knowledge. Secondly, it explores the role of TEL in EAP. This talk advocates the integration of OL tools to enhance in-person, hybrid and remote courses. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.
