Call for papers for the EATAW2019 Conference

Please submit your abstract proposals to EATAW2019 – Academic writing at intersections: Interdisciplinarity, genre hybridization, multilingualism, digitalization, and interculturality .

Deadline for abstract submissions: Jan 18, 2019

Venue: Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden

When: July 2-4, 2019

Theme: The theme of EATAW2019 invites contributions that explore and problematize the possibilities and challenges of academic writing as a place of intersections. Such intersections may include academic writing across and beyond disciplinary audiences as well as the hybridization of academic writing genres.

Other intersections would be: academic writing as a site of intercultural communication, academic writing by translingual writers and in multilingual societies, academic writing in digitalized settings, including digital genres, and blended learning.

Closely aligned with these potential intersections are questions about how academic writing as a discipline and as a higher education activity succeeds in promoting writing development and disciplinary learning at the many various intersections. The full range of formats are yet to be decided but will include both research-oriented contributions and practice-oriented ones.

EQUiiP Final Conference ¨From Experience to Expertise¨ in Freiburg on 13th June 2019

The partners of the Project Educational Quality at Universities for inclusive international Programmes (EQUiiP) are glad to invite you to the final conference of the project that will take place on 13 June 2019.

EQUiiP is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership of seven European universities.

The main outcome of the project is an online platform with resources for educational developers and other academic staff designing and teaching inclusive international programmes. At the conference, members of the EQUiiP team will present the platform and provide tasters of the content in a series of short workshops:
• Opportunities and challenges in the international classroom
• Building intercultural competences in the international classroom
• The role of languages in the international classroom
• Leadership and strategies to promote quality in higher education internationalisation

The EQUiiP project team will also present recommendations for  educational developers and other academic staff involved in planning, managing and teaching inclusive international programmes. Further to this, we will present a profile of an internationally oriented educational developer and a set of recommendations for higher education institution leaders who wish to further internationalise their institutions.

Finally, the first research results based on EQUiiP data will be presented.

The latest version of the programme and registration are available on www.equiip.eu

It provides longitudinal evidence of the phonological gains of the learners and investigates whether increased exposure to the target language leads to incidental learning of second language pronunciation.

New book: English Medium Instruction in Multilingual and Multicultural Universities – Academics’ Voices from the Northern European Context

English Medium Instruction in Multilingual and Multicultural Universities analyses the issues related to EMI at both a local and international level and provides a broad perspective on this topic. Drawing on field studies from a Northern European context and based primarily on research carried out at the University of Copenhagen, this book:

  • Introduces a topical global issue that is central to the higher education research agenda;
  • Identifies the issues and challenges involved in EMI in relation to central linguistic, pedagogical, sociolinguistic and socio-cultural concepts;
  • Captures university lecturers’ experiences in the midst of curricular change and presents reflections on ways to navigate professionally in English to meet the demands of the multilingual and multicultural classroom.

English Medium Instruction in Multilingual and Multicultural Universities is key reading for researchers, pre- and in-service teachers, university management, educational planners, and advanced students with an interest in EMI and the multilingual, multicultural university setting.

The book is available for purchase here.
