Core Corpus Skills for Academic Purposes

The aim of this one-day event is to discuss the role corpora play in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) teaching (morning session), and to plug the current gap in documentation relating to core corpus skills for academic purposes (afternoon session). By the end of the day, we aim to co-create with participants a series of Core Corpus Skills Can Do statements to present to BALEAP, to supplement their existing documentation.
