College & University Education and English for Specific Purposes Symposium 2019

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference -Mixed Audience


English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is the umbrella term for an approach to English language teaching focusing on needs-based, field- or occupation-specific pedagogy. For example, English for Science and Engineering, English for Academic Purposes, and Business English are just a few of the many areas that ESP encompasses. The CUE ESP Symposium offers teachers working in these specialized areas an opportunity to come together and share their professional experiences and research.

This year's event features plenary talks from three ESP experts: Winnie Cheng, Adjunct Professor and formerly Director of Research Centre for Professional Communication in English (RCPCE), Department of English, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, Judy Noguchi, Professor emerita of Kobe Gakuin University where she was the start-up Dean of the Faculty of Global Communication, Japan, and Laurence Anthony, Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Waseda University, Japan.
