Research Project: EAP Across Canada Survey

My name is James Corcoran and I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics at York University. My colleague, Julia Williams, Director of English Language Studies at Renison University College, University of Waterloo, and I are examining English for Academic Purposes in colleges and universities. We’re writing to invite you to participate in our research project, English for Academic Purposes: Charting the Canadian Post-Secondary Landscape, by completing a quick 20-minute online survey. If you are involved in working to support post-secondary students’ academic English — a field widely known as English for academic purposes (EAP) — at a Canadian university or college, then this survey is for you! If you agree to participate in this study, you may rest assured that participants’ privacy will be protected at all times. In appreciation of the time you have given to this study, you can enter your name (email contact information) into a draw for one of ten $50 gift cards.
