Given the importance of language and communication in Health Sciences as well as the increasing linguistic and cultural diversity in the student population in this discipline, it is important to introduce and implement initiatives and measures to better assess and address the language and communication needs of (especially, though not exclusively) English as an Additional Language (EAL) students, who make up an important segment of the student population at SFU.
This oral presentation reports on the planning and the subsequent implementation of a pilot project to support (primarily, though not solely) EAL students in a foundational health science course at SFU. This pilot project was conducted collaboratively by the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research (CELLTR) and the Faculty of Health Sciences.
