| LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES GROUP WORK Just joking! With a neighbour, describe: the advantages in your EAP context 29 LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT EAP CONTEXT:

ADVANTAGES? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Independence Flexibility

Wide-ranging teaching Opportunities for scholarship and development Working in a friendly team Seen as crucial to the Uni - clear mandate from it Well-embedded within Uni - good relationships across it 30 Our strong reputation LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT

COLLEAGUES COMMENT As an EAP unit we have the freedom and flexibility to design our own courses and develop our own materials which meet the needs of our particular students. We have close working relationships with the subject tutors on our foundation programmes and can therefore tailor materials depending on tutor feedback and advice - this also leads to greater embedding of English language into 31 the subject modules.

LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT GROUP WORK With a neighbour, describe: the disadvantages in your EAP context 32 LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT EAP CONTEXT:

DISADVANTAGES? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. None at present (3) Seen as competition by other Schools Not visible in the Uni seen as Study Skills Overlooked by senior management in Uni Lack of understanding of international

education/language learning 6. Funding-driven 7. Unit name off-putting for L1 students 33 LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT 8. Cant be agile because limited by Uni regs re programme development 9. Not in a unit with a clear T&L remit 10. Professional development funding limited 11. All year round commitments for staff no

time for pedagogical research 12. Focus on culture, not language 34 LIMITLESS POTENTIAL | LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES | LIMITLESS IMPACT Staff feel that they are not seen as 'academic' - though most admit that they never were. We are above the parapet so have nowhere to hide. poor relationship between university teaching staff and EAP staff in general
