Long time...

#tleap chats are celebrating our 5th year this week, so we've decided to hold a throwback synchronous chat on Twitter tomorrow. It would be awesome if some of you joined us, especially if you aren't part of our FB group. Check your timezone here (https://t.co/enlI3vY3Xk) and let's talk about POWER IN EAP. I really hope to see some of your familiar faces.

Can people help me out with a web design question? I'm working on the website for our upcoming ELT conference and just need some feedback on which design looks better - there's only one question in the poll so it'll take literally a few seconds.

NOV 2015: GAMIFICATION & GAME-BASED LEARNING IN EAP
I just watched the webinar below about using games in language learning contexts. I have to admit that to a large degree, I abandoned any sort of games in my classes some time ago, but it lately has piqued my interest. I guess my questions for our discussion here this month are:
a) What is the distinction between these two terms from your understanding?
b) How do you feel either fits within the EAP context?
c) What research have you come across regarding either?

I'd like to also open a discussion about how this #tleap  community can best work for you. Suggestions welcome.

OCT 2015: HOW DO WE EFFECTIVELY ACCOMMODATE VARYING STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY ISSUES IN EAP?
Background: As the program i teach in matures, we have been encountering different student accessibility issues and are learning through experience what to do. For example, this year, we have a student who is legally deaf. This presents many challenges with regards to listening practice, in particular. While he has excellent coping mechanisms for face to face situations, lectures can be challenging, not to mention recorded video excerpts, which we use heavily. The university, of course, has accessibility services for the general population, but they aren't exactly intended for intensive EAP courses like ours.

Have you had students with accessibility issues? How have you accommodated them?
