Introduction Materials and associated tasks are fundamental to teaching and learning English for academic purposes (EAP). Materials, often depicted as “anything” used to facilitate learning (Tomlinson, 2013), include EAP textbooks, commercial materials that are not part of EAP-textbook packages, excerpts from introductory university textbooks, teacher-created worksheets, video recordings, online sites (including technology, entertainment, and design talks (TEDs)), and computer-assisted language learning programs. Inextricably linked to these materials are the tasks associated with them that students engage in to process materials, learn from them, and attain course objectives. In EAP contexts, materials and tasks work in concert to prepare students for future academic pursuits.
