Embracing a Scholar-Practitioner Identity: Insights for EAL Teaching and Learning

October 27, 2023 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


On Friday, Oct. 27, join us for a panel discussion on insights for English as an Additional Language (EAL) teaching and learning.

Bringing together theory, research, and practical knowledge, this panel features speakers from UBC Vancouver’s English Language Institute and Department of Language and Literacy Education to share their insights into EAL teaching and learning. Topics span the nexus of theory and practice to make classroom connections and provide a meaningful glimpse into the work of our colleagues from the lower mainland. There will be an opportunity for questions and conversation.
