Global Resources in ESP: Free Research From the University of California

Hello, ESPers worldwide!

I am always on the lookout for free resources that I can share with other ESPers. That is why I was especially pleased to read about the decision of the University of California to open its research to the public for free!

Here are some useful links:

  1. eScholarship
  2. UC Open Access Policy
  3. Frequently Asked Questions

There are also several articles on this UC announcement, so for some additional information, you might want to search for and retrieve one or more of those articles online.

How can you use this UC research? Imagine the possibilities! For your own professional development? To meet the needs of your learners?

Finally, if you know of any websites or other digital resources that you can share with other ESPers, please post the links to those resources in the TESOL ESP-IS Library!

Good luck with your professional development and training efforts!

All the best,
Kevin

    It’s brilliant to see initiatives such as this. Free access to TESOL scholarship was the main driver in setting up http://www.tesolacademic.org we now host 51 YouTube talks. In our most recent Keynote Prof Spada talks about CLT and form focused instruction. Enjoy :-)
