Asynchronous and Synchronous EAP Teaching and Learning

Blended and online EAP courses have become an essential part on offer by numerous HE institutions.This webinar presents quantitative and qualitative research around the experience of students who study EAP online. The quantitative research attempts to shed light on the primary question if the online component of language learning impacts the overall achievement and progress of students. The qualitative research consists of four mini case-studies, i.e deep interviews with successful online students.

The research presents an overview of key factors from SLA theories that shape the experience of online learners, thus providing insight into best practices for online language teaching. It examines issues such as motivation, language aptitude, language level, personality type, learning skills transfer etc.
