Sustainability and Inter University Collaboration in Higher Education Capacity Building for English for Specific and Academic Purposes (ESAP)

How can scholars of science and technology gain ground and confidence to professionally communicate in English in a global world? In this workshop the (peda)linguistic underpinning of this growth is highlighted in order to feed an ensuing round table discussion on sustainable networks and projects. It focuses on the results of capacity building projects in which joint or dual PhD diplomas are granted, and which have been bridging and stimulating collaboration among universities worldwide, including Latin America.
