Academic Literacies and EAP: Same or different?

The theme of the first event organised jointly by ALDinHE and BALEAP was Academic Literacies and EAP: Same or different? The impetus for our topic stems from experience of EAP professionals increasingly being expected to teach home students and Learning Support professionals being expected to provide targeted support for international students. We believe that the two teaching specialisms may be gradually merging, and that, in any case, we have much to learn by sharing areas of contrast and overlap in our remits, roles, and practices.
