#EAPchat is an hour-long discussion on Twitter, following the success established by the #ELTchat model. Though this chat incorporates topics relevant to English language teaching in the broader sense, sometimes touching on more niche areas, as an academic reading and writing teacher at the University of Toronto, I wanted to discuss topics especially relevant to English for Academic Purposes contexts more often. Thus, in February 2012, I began #EAPchat along with two other educators in similar contexts, Adam Simpson & Sharon Turner (Turkey).
Dates & times
To accommodate the three of us initially, we selected 1PM EST / 8PM Istanbul on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month. Check your timezone here. This may change as we grow, but for Year 1, we drew from 2 to 10 participants during each chat.
Log on to Twitter during the chat in your timezone and search for tweets with the #EAPchat hashtag. Use the hashtag at the end of your tweets to send your comments to the everyone involved. This can be fast-paced and a little confusing to a first-time tweeter, so alternatively, try out Tweetchat.
In Year 2, to give those unable to attend the live chats a chance to catch up and participate in the topical discussions asynchronously, we will post the chat transcript and any related information for that week’s discussion on the #EAPchat site. Please use the commenting function on the posts to link to or post your thoughts.
