Addressing EAP Students` Needs in the Tertiary Context On the Use of Digital Course Books in English for Language Teaching Academic Purposes

Jarosław Krajka , Agnieszka Gadomska

Abstract

Together with a growing interest in English for Specific Purposes (ESP), also English for Academic Purposes (EAP) as a separate branch of English for Language Teaching (ELT) is gaining more and more attention. While the provision of ready-made teaching resources is adequate in many branches of ESP, the EAP teacher frequently faces the challenge of finding, assembling and digitizing materials for in-class use. The purpose of the chapter is to reflect on EAP learners’ needs in the digital era, learner autonomy, teacher training implications and the issues of materials development, in specific, on the role of IT based course books and tools for teaching academic writing
