Abstract

In many British universities, EAP writing courses are taught 'outside of the disciplines', in a Language Centre. Learners from different disciplines are often taught together, learning generic writing skills that they are expected to apply to the specific contexts of their disciplines, often during concurrent studies. The resulting physical and conceptual separation of writing from the contexts of learning within the disciplines creates pedagogic challenges for teacher and learner alike. This article focuses on how we meet individual learners' needs on an EAP writing course by combining product, process and genre, and linking up with students' practices in their disciplines.
