CLIL & EAP: teaching history

Many educators have argued that the best way to learn something, anything, is through context. For ELT, this often means language through content. In fact, content-based instruction (CBI) is an app…

Diane Schmitt, BALEAP Chair, closed the Sheffield University one-day conference on EAP processes and practice (BALEAP PIM) with this talk on bringing theory and practice, theorising and practising closer together. Diane notes that research academics are often invited to EAP practitioner conferences to keynote, and tellingly asks how often we see practitioners invited to give plenaries at research-oriented conferences.

Ten Ways To Get Hold Of Academic Literature

Ten Ways To Get Hold Of Academic Literature | IPA-ESP | Scoop.it
One of the big barriers to doing academic work when you're not a salaried academic is lack of access to academic literature. Books are one problem, though you can often get hold of them through inter-library loans, national libraries, or (if they're not too new) cheap second-hand copies online. But academic journals are the major…

David Hyatt - Reconceptualising EAP as Academic Repertoire

Steve Kirk's curator insight, November 24, 2015 4:26 PM

The lunchtime plenary at ELTC Sheffield's day on EAP processes and practice, a BALEAP PIM. David Hyatt considers the marginalisation of EAP and how we might redress the balance between the perceived status and value of academics and EAP professionals. To this end he draws upon the notion of EAP as 'academic repertoire'. I'm not sure there is much new in this message, but the talk is a good one and reflects a growing sentiment across the sector.

Página de inicio de Real Academia de Ingeniería | IPA-ESP | Scoop.it

Nuestra lengua es el mayor tesoro que tenemos y además de su gran riqueza léxica es la segunda lengua del mundo por el número de hablantes que la tienen como lengua materna. El idioma español se ha convertido en un vehículo de comunicación y en los organismos internacionales en los que se usa este idioma los profesionales de la Lengua y de la Ingeniería necesitan un diccionario que traduzca los términos del español al inglés y viceversa. Además, la Ingeniería tiene como objetivo transformar diariamente el conocimiento en soluciones prácticas y de esta labor nacen nuevos términos que deben ser recogidos y estudiados minuciosamente. Por esta razón, desde la Real Academia de Ingeniería se pensó en confeccionar un repertorio que recogiese los vocablos de cada una de las disciplinas que forman la Ingeniería y que además fuese pionero en accesibilidad y usabilidad.

El Diccionario Español de Ingeniería se concibe como un gran árbol cuyo tronco es la Ingeniería y del que se desprenden nueve grandes ramas:

Astronáutica, naval y transportesAgroforestalConstrucciónTecnologías de la información y las comunicacionesSeguridad y defensaQuímica industrialEnergíaIngeniería biomédicaIngeniería general

Estas nueve grandes ramas de la Ingeniería se han dividido en treinta y dos campos para recoger con precisión todas las voces técnicas utilizadas por los ingenieros afines a cada una de ellos.

Han pasado más de diez años desde que empezaron las gestiones para la elaboración del Diccionario y durante los siete últimos años se han analizado 120 millones de palabras, se han utilizado unas 1500 obras de referencia y han participado más de 100 ingenieros y expertos en los distintos campos de la Ingeniería con el apoyo de un equipo lexicográfico dotado de los mejores medios tanto personales como materiales.

Esta primera edición del Diccionario Español de Ingeniería incluye más de 50.000 voces de la Ingeniería pero, al igual que la lengua de la que se alimenta, es una obra viva que se irá actualizando a medida que surjan nuevos avances tecnológicos y con ellos nuevos términos.

Excmo. Sr. D. Antonio Colino Martínez

Académico director del Diccionario Español de Ingeniería
