EAP Within the Higher Education Garden: Cross-Pollination Between Disciplines, Departments and Research

This volume consists of 21 papers from the BALEAP Biennial Conference held at the University of Portsmouth in the UK in 2011. The papers contribute to a wide range of current debates within English for Academic Purposes and reflect the eclectic theme of the conference: 'EAP Within the Higher Education Garden: Cross-Pollination Between Disciplines, Departments and Research'.

The volume reflects the strength and vitality of EAP research, which is in part a consequence of its heterogenous nature and willingness to draw on a wide variety of scholarship. In the first plenary paper, Janette Ryan outlines the changing institutional context created by the popularity of an international education. In the second, Ian Bruce shows how negotiating texts within specific disciplines is made easier through a genre-based pedagogy. Several papers show how discipline-specific pedagogies can be implemented, but there is also a section demonstrating successful corss-institutional approaches. The specific/general distinction is taken up and developed in papers which focus on assessment and argumentation. The volume is rounded off by papers presenting work which encourages professional development and good practice in learning, teaching and research.

BALEAP, the global forum for EAP professionals, brings together practitioners to share, critique and cultivate EAP practice and develop good quality teaching and research of academic English, study skills and the wider student experience.
