A few months ago, I proposed an #EAPchat to fill the void left by the great parent chats, like #edchat and #eltchat. Now, it’s about to begin!
Adam Simpson, Sharon Turner (Sabanci University, Istanbul) and I (University of Toronto) have worked in EAP programs extensively and are very passionate about this field of study. After months of speculation and hope, we are now organised and ready to talk about topics and issues important to educators and administrators in programs connected to or preparing for higher education study through the #EAPchat hashtag!
A couple steps that will make this new chat start smoothly for us and for you, if you don’t mind:
– Like the #EAPchat Facebook page. Initially this is where we all can post EAP-related links to articles and blog posts. Our first topic poll is there too. The actual chat will also move to it in our second week as we alternate between Twitter and Facebook for the first while.
Hope to see you and your big brains on Monday! I look forward to getting to know everyone more. If you can’t make it this time around, don’t worry. We’ll collect a summary of sorts on the Facebook page.
