Presentation Formats:

  • Presentations (25 minutes) on a single topic followed by the opportunity for questions and discussion.
  • Workshops (50 minutes) in which a facilitator leads attendees in discussing, reflecting on or applying the theme of the activity.

  • What does it mean to teach EAP in local contexts?
  • How do we adapt EAP curricula in different contexts? What are some of the local innovations?
  • How do we maintain our identity as EAP practitioners in increasingly globalized academic communities?
  • How does English as the academic lingua franca impact EAP teaching?
  • How has EAP pedagogy changed in recent years and how does this impact us?
  • How can the changes in EAP teaching meet the increasing demands of internationalization, multilingualism, and challenges (e.g. COVID-19) in higher education?
