EALTHY & Specialist Language Courses

February 2024 | EALTHY Blog | Linguistics | Webinars 2024

In this session, Dr. Shelley Staples, a corpus linguist and healthcare communication researcher, discusses findings from key corpus linguistics studies in the medical context and how these findings could be applied to classroom instruction. Findings of relevance for both written and oral communication will be discussed. Participants will also be given an opportunity to brainstorm how to apply findings to their own teaching context within medical English education.
