Talking Academics is a project partly funded by the Vice Chancellor's Office Dr. Pellert. Support was awarded by Doris Carstensen.
The parties involved are Carol McCoullough and Valerie Arndt, plus NGB. Final versions of this project will run on WebCT servers in Exeter and Graz.
Materials are based on mini-lectures given by academics from various departments at the University of Exeter. Their purpose is to develop listening and note-taking skills, plus vocabulary, awareness of organisation and relevant language marking lecture structure, as well as awareness of some pronunciation issues.
