Meeting Description: 

The theme for the 2003 BALEAP Conference is Developing Academic
Literacy. Although it is expected that many papers will address issues
of reading and writing for academic purposes, the theme will also
encourage papers on: genre analysis; assessment and evaluation;
criticality; learner autonomy; the use of technology. The intention is
to interpret the topic as broadly as possible, so as to include work
not only with EFL students but also with EAL/ESL and native speaker
students. The theme for the 2003 BALEAP Conference is Developing
