ACADEMIC ENGLISH FOR TEACHING AND PRESENTING

INSTRUCTOR:

Teresa Morell Moll. English Studies Department, University of Alicante

DESIGNED FOR:

Lecturers and researchers of the University of Alicante

MAIN OBJECTIVES:

There is no doubt that English is the lingua franca for academic communication. Therefore, university lecturers and researchers need to become more familiar with academic English so as to facilitate their international students understanding of the subject matter they teach, and to improve their communication of research developments and results among international colleagues of their fields.

In this workshop we will reflect on what we need to take into account to be successful in communicating in English in our classrooms and at international conferences. We will review the linking devices, tactics and steps to follow in order to attract our audiences attention and to be effective in involving them in our discourse. Each participant will carry out a short presentation on a topic within their fields of teaching and/or research.

REQUIREMENTS:

Participants must have at least an upper intermediate level of proficiency in the English language 

SYLLABUS AND METHODOLOGY:

The workshop will be held in English and will consist of two parts. We will first review the theoretical and practical notions of Academic English and its use in oral presentations through interactive lectures. In the second half we will carry out oral presentations.

EVALUATION:

Active participation. Each participant will carry out their own presentation and will be involved in the presentations of others. Attendance is required at 80% of the sessions.
