Academic Listening in the 21st Century: Reviewing a Decade of Research
Lynch, Tony
Journal of English for Academic Purposes, v10 n2 p79-88 Jun 2011
This review article extends the conventional notion of academic listening to include reciprocal (two-way) listening events in academic settings, as well as (one-way) listening to lectures. The introductory section highlights the comparatively low profile of listening in EAP research, due in part to the inherent complexity of listening and its investigation. The second section, on one-way listening, surveys research into real, course-embedded lectures, experimental lectures, and conference presentations. The third, on two-way listening, covers interactive lectures, student presentations, and supervisions and office hours. The final section looks ahead to likely future directions for academic listening research. (Contains 1 table.)
