How can ECAAPT help me?

ECAAPT can assist in the following ways:

  • Content Embedding: ECAAPT helps educators embed specific academic literacies content into their modules or courses. It allows them to identify and select appropriate learning materials, activities, and assessments that align with the desired academic literacies outcomes.
  • Mapping: ECAAPT facilitates the mapping of academic literacies across modules and programs. Educators can visualise how different elements of academic literacies are distributed and interconnected within the curriculum. This mapping enables them to identify any gaps or redundancies and make informed decisions for improvement.
  • Tracking Progress: The toolkit helps track the progress of academic literacies development for individual students, groups, or entire cohorts. It allows educators to monitor students' performance, assess their attainment of specific literacies, and identify areas where additional support may be required.
  • Evaluation and Feedback: ECAAPT provides tools for evaluating the effectiveness of academic literacies instruction. Educators can collect feedback from students, analyze assessment data, and make data-informed decisions to enhance the integration of academic literacies content.
  • By using ECAAPT, educators can streamline the process of embedding, tracking, and evaluating academic literacies across modules and programs, ensuring a coherent and comprehensive approach to developing students' academic skills and competencies.
