Session details:

The talk outlines recent research employing corpus analysis for EAP, considers the effectiveness of learner investigations of corpora in ‘data-driven learning’, and explores the kinds of discoveries teachers can make from corpora. The focus will be on applying corpus analysis in classroom activities and materials, and participants will have the opportunity to compare their intuitions about language with corpus evidence.
