Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In the spring of 1984 Chris Candlin, Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Lancaster, was on study leave at the University of Hawaii. There he had the opportunity to record a conversation with Ted Rodgers, who is Professor of Psycholinguistics at the University, and Director of the Hawaii English Program,1 in which he has been involved for some eighteen years. The discussion, of which excerpts are transcribed below, centred on what in British circles is called 'syllabus design', and in American English is known (more aptly so far as the topics explored here are concerned) as 'curriculum design'.
