This is the second International Conference on English Across the Curriculum (EAC) to be held at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The conference and the pre-conference workshops will explore ways to enhance students’ English literacy in discipline content subjects via collaborations between academics from different disciplines and language teaching units. The conference aims to include multiple perspectives on EAC and Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and expands the scholarship in this increasingly important aspect of education. Academics and educators from universities and schools are welcome.
