Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The overall aim of the course is to provide students with a critical awareness of a range of issues, research and professional knowledge associated with the teaching of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) at pre-sessional, in-sessional and postgraduate levels.

Links between teaching and research

In addition to drawing upon a range of published material in the area of EAP, this course will also draw upon my own work as a published researcher and author in this field. My publications can be viewed on the University’s research database at http://www.waikato.ac.nz/php/research.php?mode=show&author=102676

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
This is a single, Semester B paper within the MA(Applied) teaching programme. The paper involves one three-hour lecture per week and will require additional tutorial help either during the office hour or by individual appointment. Because this is a masters-level paper, your lectures, and individual reading and assignment work will together require a commitment of 12-15 hours per week.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content
There is no examination for this course. The course will be assessed by means of five assignments. The first three assignments will require formal, academic writing while Assignments 4 and 5 will be of a more practical nature. Formal writing, such as in the first three assignments, must be double-spaced. Quotes, in-text referencing (citations) and reference lists (and the bibliography in Assignment 5) must follow the conventions of the APA Manual (6th ed.). The following link takes you to the University Library’s APA Guide (6th edition) http://www.waikato.ac.nz/library/study/referencing/styles/apa Because the course operates outside of regular office hours, assignments may be submitted by email as attachments or handed to the lecturer in class. Marked assignments will be returned in class.
