In this presentation, I will share details and early findings from my case study that investigates to what extent the integration of Generative AI in an EAP writing class can strengthen students’ critical digital literacy skills. The study engages undergraduate EAP students enrolled on an in-sessional EAP course at the University of Glasgow. In my project, I integrate Generative AI into my EAP classroom, specifically in academic writing activities to enable my students to use Generative AI to enhance their academic essays and critically evaluate the generated texts as well as the sources and digital tools used. Integrating AI in the EAP curriculum will enable students to look at AI through a critical lens which in turn may help them to make the right decisions for their academic development. Gaining an understanding of to what extent and in what ways integration of Generative AI in the EAP writing class can strengthen students’ critical digital literacy skills will help me to better understand the needs of EAP students studying in the digital era and my classroom. I believe that the knowledge gained from the study will in turn help me, my EAP colleagues at SMLC and other EAP practitioners and HE institutions to make pedagogical decisions on how to adjust the EAP curriculum to meet the needs of such students to support their academic development.
