@seburnt That's a shame: I'm proud of the French & Russian courses I did at uni, why shouldn't my Ss improve their English? #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Thanks guys. I unfortunatley have a meeting to attend now, but PLEASE continue your thoughts on your blogs and tweet w/ #EAPchat. #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Adding credit would increase motiv and stakes (in some progs), but also reward. #eapchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
@seburnt Yes, exactly & that's what's changed (partly) now, but I think Uni require it for all credit courses #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Really? EAP courses in my exp involve just as much work as any credit course and should be rewarded so. @yearinthelifeof #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
RT @yearinthelifeof: imo giving credit for EPA course is like giving credit for learning study skills - hard to justify but happens #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@lexicojules Ahh. Ours were denied direct entry and given EAP as a pathway into direct entry if they pass... #eapchat
Adam Simpson @yearinthelifeof
In my opinion giving credit for EPA course is like giving credit for learning study skills - hard to justify but happens #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Did you have the final as the load-bearing grade for the course? @lexicojules #eapchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
@seburnt Most of my teaching is that type, but Ss can choose EAP as an option with credits too. #EAPchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
... so rather than supporting learning they just wanted to pass final exam. Assessment has now changed but tricky to get right #EAPchat
Adam Simpson @yearinthelifeof
@seburnt @michaelegriffin Same in Turkey for ileitis and tefl and requirements vary from one place to next #eapchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
My experience of an insessional, credit-bearing EAP support course a few yrs ago was Ss just wanted to know what to do to 'pass' #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Why do your students have to take an EAP course, @lexicojules if not to get into a credit course? #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Do you find @lexicojules that your SS are highly motivated by the credit component? #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Direct entry (bypassing EAP course) reqs certain university-chosen IELTS/TOEFL scores. @michaelegriffin #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
RT @michaelegriffin forgive my ignorance but dont SS need a certain level/score 2 enter credit classes?Thus high motivation already #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@lexicojules I'm sure you can speak about your experience being credit, Julie! #eapchat
