Anti-requisite(s): 010039 Teaching English for Academic Purposes



This subject is designed for students who aim to teach programs that support students studying at tertiary level in English. This may include teaching in tertiary preparation courses, academic language support programs, or teaching other subject areas in English-medium universities where some or all students are non-native speakers of English. It is also relevant to teaching in senior secondary schools as a pathway to academic study. The subject takes account of the contexts of English for academic purposes (EAP) in Australia and internationally. The content addresses aspects from the nature of academic English, issues of program design and provision, modes of pedagogy, and practices in testing and assessment. Students engage with theories of language and learning as they have relevance to the context of teaching EAP. They apply theoretical knowledge in explorations of their own practice and that of others in the field.
