Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 4
Description:

The Bologna Reform has been implemented in a large part of the European
Union and it is time to take a short pause to reflect over some of the
lessons learned up to now. The aim of this book is to share experiences and
reflections on English for Specific Purposes pedagogy in Western European
higher education. Taking as a starting point the development of the EU
policies during the past couple of decades and their national
implementations, the chapters in this book provide various perspectives,
both theoretical and practical, on the ways in which the reform has been
implemented and its effects on the teaching of ESP. Experiences of
developing programmes and courses incorporating Content and Language
Integrated Learning and Autonomous and Lifelong Learning are described, as
well as Problem-Based Learning and Process-Genre Pedagogies. The book also
includes chapters on the crucial, but often neglected issue of teacher
support in meeting the challenges of teaching content through the medium of
English.
