ITMO University invites you to participate in the International Online Conference «More than ESP». The Conference is devoted to the vital issue of adapting English for Specific Purposes teaching methods to today’s student profile. «More than ESP» traditionally gathers participants from multifaceted spheres, both academic and business. Our workshops will provide a valuable opportunity to gain practical knowledge in dealing with multiple challenges of teaching ESP to students of various majors.
In 2021 the Conference will be devoted to the transition from the classroom to the workplace. During the hands-on sessions and plenaries, the participants will consider the topic from three angles: from the viewpoint of the students, the teachers, and the employers. We will discuss the following questions: how exactly will the skills that we teach the students help them to be successful in their future careers? What kind of skills will the students need in terms of the English Language? What techniques, methodologies, and tools have proven to be effective for teaching these skills?
Participation in the Conference will be especially beneficial for university faculty staff members teaching English in non-linguistic institutions, as well as for those using English-Medium Instruction. EL professionals employed in private language schools will also find participation useful and rewarding.
