ELO Post-Specific Projects



Bridging the Gap in International Academic Writing in Russia

On September 26th, participants of the Moscow English Language Office (ELO) supported project met in Kolomna, Russia to share their ideas with the ELO and to discuss future projects. One of the major challenges Russian scholars and teachers face today is the number of publications in foreign journals that have become requirements in performance ratings. The problem is, many teachers and scholars here are unfamiliar with the culture, structure, and conventions of academic writing in English for internationally peer-reviewed journals. The “International Breakthrough in Research and Academic Writing" provided a unique opportunity for fourteen leading Russian scholars in foreign languages to enhance their skills in research, academic writing, editing. The six month long project resulted in new "academic writing hubs" at six Universities in diverse regions of Russia and three manuscripts submitted to international journals (with 11 in the refinement stage).This pilot project revealed the need for creating writing centers where specific assistance and training for faculty and students can be held. Based on the feedback from participants, ELO Moscow is developing a second phase of this project to enhance the expertise of a broader range of participants who will have a better understanding of English academic writing as they advise their home institutions on issues related to curriculum and the establishment of writing centers.


Teaching English to Blind and Visually Impaired Students in Russia

On September 26th, a team of participants of the Moscow English Language Office supported project "Equal Opportunities: Teaching English to Blind and Visually Impaired Students" ( BVI project) met to discuss further steps in enhancing the ideas of the program. “Inclusion” as a new Russian government mandate has created a great number of challenges for English language teachers as many do not have even basic knowledge on how to work with students with special needs in regular or inclusion classes. The team has developed a set of "first - aid" rules for teachers and a curriculum for a crash in- service course. The materials are posted at the http://www.english4blind.ru website. With the English Language Office, the team also hopes to develop future materials for teachers and students and design more in-depth courses for teachers struggling to meet the needs of special populations in their classrooms and schools.
