THE USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY IN AN ESAP COURSE IN HIGHER EDUCATION

M. Neophytou

Cyprus University of Technology (CYPRUS)
The purpose of this poster is to show how instructional technology can be implemented and incorporated in the teaching of an English for Specific Academic Purposes (ESAP) language course. Using technology in English for Specific Academic Purposes courses may be challenging and it simultaneously creates opportunities which might be different from the ones in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) contexts. The pedagogical objective of this poster is how to exploit instructional technology effectively in order to integrate Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) “Can Do” performance objectives (Council of Europe, 2001) into the syllabus and assessment of an advanced (B2) level ESAP course. One of the challenges faced during this research was the fact that there are no CEFR “Can Do” statements for related Specific Academic skills or the use of technology. This poster presents the effort to close this gap.
