7th Summer Seminar: June 6th—7th, 2013

Theme: EAP and Technology-enhanced Learning

The keynote talks will be by Martin Barge, Jessica Cooper and William Tweddle from Queen Mary, University of London, who have extensive experience in developing technology-enhanced courses in EAP.

This is what they propose for NFEAP 2013:

«Our talk will be on creating online materials for EAP students. We will cover the whole process: planning and design, sourcing content, selecting authoring platforms, piloting/trialling and revising the material (what some call an ‘iterative’ development process) and tracking its use. We will base this on our experiences of creating the “Academic English Online” materials that we created for our students at Queen Mary University, London. So our paper will be based on real experience, but will also be underpinned by key literature in the field of Computer Assisted Language Learning.»

The Norwegian Forum for English for Academic Purposes (NFEAP) is a collaborating group of EAP teachers and researchers working at institutions of higher education in Norway. We also have as members interested EAP practitioners from other countries, but the forum is based in Norway.

Location: Athene 1 – Auditorium, at Oslo and Akershus University College (HiOA), Pilestredet 46, 0167 Oslo, Norway.
