WHAT IT MEANS TO KNOW A WORD: IMPLICATIONS FOR PEDAGOGY

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 30 August 2015 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Professor Sandra Lee McKay

This presentation explores what it means to know a word by examining how English words are related to one another. Specifically, we examine homonyms, polysemes, synonyms, antonyms, registers, dialects, collocation patterns and idioms, illustrating that to know a word, learners need to be aware of both the way words are related to one another and how they are used in various contexts.

STRATEGIES FOR CREATING AN INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNERS IN JAPAN

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, 24 June 2015 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Speaker: 
Dr John Hope, University of Auckland

English is the predominant international language of business, science and research. It is not an easy language to learn and English language levels in Japan are low compared to other Asian destinations such as Hong Kong and Singapore. The low level of English provision in Japan is seen as a limitation on international student participation in Japanese schools and universities.

Speaker: 
Dr. Heath Rose, Trinity College Dublin / Oxford University (from September)

Teachers working in university settings are coming under increasing pressure to actively engage in research, and to have the results of this research published.

Date and Time: 
Friday, 9 January 2015 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Speaker: 
Professor Neil Matheson, University of Auckland, New Zealand

ESP research documenting genre and style variation in academic writing has highlighted concerns that EAP style tertiary writing courses present an overly-generalised and decontextualized view of academic writing, which does not adequately prepare students for the challenges of disciplinary writing.
