This course is designed for teachers and students who have to teach or produce advanced written texts for academic, professional or research purposes. The focus is on using product-focused, process-oriented and genre-based approaches to generate plain English texts that conform to academic and discipline-oriented standards in terms of genre conventions, rhetorical structures and discoursal features.  The instructor will demonstrate how to deconstruct and analyse model texts, journal articles and research papers in diverse contexts, invoke analytical thinking skills and develop effective instructional strategies on writing pedagogy. Participants will receive constructive feedback and suggestions on their writing products.

Academic and research writings are based on understanding and analysing various relevant literature and field study data hence demanding reading, writing, analysing and critical thinking skills and abilities. To be a competent instructor of writing in EAP, one needs to clearly understand (1) writing as a practice of academic literacies and a situated socio-cultural activity in disciplinary discourse communities involving development of cognitive and linguistic abilities among the learners and writers, (2) the individual needs of ESL/EFL students, and (3) the effective instructional designs and pedagogical methods.

課程詳情
