EAP conference at the University of St Andrews

The International Education Institute (IE) has held events for teaching professionals for the last ten years. What started as a workshop back in 2011 has become a conference recognised by English for Academic Purposes (EAP) professionals from all over the world as a go-to event for sharing ideas and best practice.

10th anniversary

'Transitions and Tribulations: EAP at the crossroads' marked the 10th anniversary of our annual EAP conference. It was always our intention to make this a special conference – and different, and of course, like everything else in recent months, it certainly was different. The theme was transitions, which can have a wide variety of interpretations – moving online, from school to university, UG to PG, TEFL to EAP, to name but a few.

This year, the conference took place entirely online on Microsoft Teams. Many of the plenary speakers from previous St Andrews conferences returned to mark our 10th anniversary, we ‘met’ many old friends again and made new ones.

A big thank you goes out to all presenters and attendees. We are now working on next year's theme, keep checking this web page for more information on the EAP Conference 2022.
