Creative inquiry in EAP is an arts-informed project setting out to investigate EAP practitioners’ creative voice, conceptualisation of creativity in EAP and how it contributes to students’ and teachers’ agency in intercultural learning. We are particularly interested in emergent ways creativity is used in EAP classes and how COVID-19 affected EAP teachers’ creativity and how it is being changed. Through a mixed method arts-informed research approach we hope to develop a framework of creative inquiry in EAP. The project will involve three phases, including an online drama workshop.
