Abstract To prepare learners for the arduous tasks of simultaneously listening to and taking notes during (English medium instruction) EMI lectures, instructors have implemented explicit notetaking instruction with some degree of success. However, many such studies focus on improvements within the instructed group and do not compare results with those from control groups, leading to questions of generalizability. Thus, questions remain as to whether explicit notetaking instruction generates bett...
Abstract This paper explores OpenCourseWare (OCW) lectures as a key resource for EAP research and practice. The aim is to gain insights into the distinctive features of this technology-driven lecture format and how it may differ from the traditional classroom lecture not intended for an online audience. The analysis was structured into two parts. First, the digital affordances provided by two pioneers of the open education movement (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University) were...

Abstract We argue in the present paper that the (socio)linguistic description of grammatical complexity provides a necessary complement to predictive omnibus measures as an analytical approach for the study of student writing proficiency and development. That is, while omnibus measures can be effective for predicting student performance, we argue that a comprehensive grammatical description is required to fully understand and interpret the linguistic characteristics of written texts produced by ...

Abstract Partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) is a statistical analysis technique that has been widely adopted in marketing and strategic management disciplines, yet there is a paucity of application in language education research. This study applies PLS-SEM in an investigation of undergraduate students’ learning transfer by analysing their perceptions of learned skills they find transferable in a general EAP course and the extent of transferability to interdisciplinary-o...

Abstract Since the turn of the millennium, the internationalisation process that higher education institutions have engaged in worldwide has resulted in an unprecedented expansion of English-medium study programmes. In this regard, the academic writing produced in such contexts reveals that an increasing amount of student work, from classroom assignments to MA dissertations and PhD theses, is written in English. Against this background, this paper introduces the ROAD-MAPPING framework (Dafouz & ...
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to evaluate current EAP textbooks in terms of pedagogy of transition markers. Transition markers, e.g. moreover, therefore, are interactive metadiscourse devices which facilitate the reader's understanding of the text (Hyland, 2005). Previous research shows that they pose a challenge to learners of academic English, who tend to overuse transition markers and misuse them both semantically and stylistically. Recommendations for teaching transition markers from...
