English as an Additional Language

English as an Additional Language Learning Lab

Designed to support English as an additional language (EAL) teaching and learning in the Okanagan School of Education, the EAL Learning Lab provides a space to bring together theory, research, and practice to create meaningful experiences for students and scholarly insights for educators.

As such, the EAL Learning Lab is a facilitated learning environment for the English Foundation Program and related courses, a pilot location for developing Open Educational Resources (OER), a research site for graduate students and faculty members, a creative area for professional development, and a community field experience opportunity for teacher candidates.

Open Educational Resources

These Open Educational Resources (OER) are designed for students learning English as an additional language (EAL) in an English for academic purposes (EAP) program.
