The ICLHE is the association for expertise, networking and resources in the integration of content and language in higher education. The aim of the ICLHE association is to promote exchange of opinions, experiences, initiatives and research concerning the interface between content and language in higher education.
ICLHE is open to people in universities and institutes of higher education with an interest in content and language, including people concerned with teaching and learning through a second language, and teaching and learning through a national language to people of migrant or ethnic communities.
ICLHE also welcomes policymakers and researchers in international bodies and professional societies, publishers, representatives of national and international authorities, and others with an interest in the integration of content and language in higher education.
We are pleased to inform you that the next ICLHE AGM and Symposium will take place at Université de Mons (Belgium) on October 15-16, 2020. This symposium focuses on collaboration between disciplines, in particular the way in which disciplinary content teachers and language specialists collaborate. In a broader perspective, the meshing of content knowledge and an additional language may lead to changes in how content knowledge is co-constructed, therefore redefining teacher identity, roles and expectations. The symposium aims to address the following questions: Does interdisciplinary collaboration influence whether ICLHE or EMI programmes are inclusive? Does teacher collaboration in EMI have an impact on self-awareness and self- reflection? Are potential actors or participants sidelined or excluded? In what way does the student’s role enhance ICLHE or EMI programmes? How does the student perceive both language experts’ and content teachers’ roles in EMI? How can interdisciplinary collaboration enhance the student’s role?

Microsoft Word – CFP EMI Teacher Training in HE – RAEI Special Issue.docx
The ever-increasing phenomenon of EMI in non-Anglophone universities throughout the world
has brought many challenges to stakeholders. Among these are providing teachers, who switch
from teaching in their mother tongue to English, with needed linguistic, pedagogical and
intercultural training. In this RAEI special issue, we call for research articles that will support
university authorities, teacher trainers and trainees to implement: training programs,
methodologies, strategies and ‘best practices’ for EMI teacher training in Higher Education.
In addition to research articles, proposals for book reviews of recent publications related to the field of EMI teacher training in Higher Education, are also welcome.
English-medium instruction (EMI) has become a pervasive teaching model in recent higher education. The implementation of EMI programs requires changes in university teaching methods since most lecturers need to adapt their contents and the way they teach them to successfully work in foreign language environments. The rapid proliferation of such programs has resulted in concern among teaching staff, who have felt pushed towards teaching their subject content through a non-native language with little or no previous training. As a result, many recent studies have highlighted the importance and urgency to train teaching staff in terms of language proficiency and the appropriate teaching methods, techniques, and strategies to be applied in EMI lessons.
Teacher Training for English-Medium Instruction in Higher Education is an academic research publication that provides comprehensive research on effective approaches and experiences in teacher training for EMI at universities both in terms of language skills and teaching methodologies and that analyzes the design and development of comprehensive teacher training programs that successfully engage these EMI programs. It has profound implications for the development of the international profile of higher education institutions as it provides information on how to train highly-qualified lecturers to successfully teach students from different nationalities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as assessment, curriculum design, and learning styles, this book is ideal for pre- and in-service teachers, language specialists, content specialists, administrators, deans, higher education faculty, researchers, practitioners, curriculum designers, policymakers, academicians, and students.
The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:
