English Across the Curriculum Collaborative Projects: A Flexible Community of Practice Model at The Chinese University of Hong Kong
Chapter in an edited book (author)


摘要While Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) initiatives have a history stretching back several decades in the West, their development in Asia has been more recent. This paper discusses the development and implementation of an institutionalized initiative, the English Across the Curriculum (EAC) project at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. This campus-wide movement differs from many Western initiatives in that it utilizes Community of Practice (CoP) collaborative projects which include applied linguists and ESL specialists as well as content specialists. Additionally, due to student diversity and the unique language policy of the university, the Project has eschewed adopting a fixed implementation model, instead allowing alternative forms of collaboration and implementation approaches to emerge based on needs and specific domains. This paper specifically explores the similarities, differences, challenges, and keys to success of four CoP projects that have been implemented in four departments: statistics, information engineering, music, and psychology.
