Welcome to ICLHE

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.

7th ICLHE Conference, 18-21 October 2022

Maastricht (Netherlands)

The 2022 Conference will follow up on the Symposium in 2021 by homing in on the language that has become dominant in many spheres, English. The Conference will examine how English is impacting on the classroom, the key actors involved, the university and society. This includes, importantly, the impact of the learning and teaching of content through other additional languages.

Keynote Speakers include: Professor Aminata Cairo, Professor Philippe Van Parijs, and Dr Kristina Hultgren, Professor Kwok-kan Tam and Alma Maldonado-Maldonado.

Call for proposals (deadline: 26 May)

Workshop about international higher education writing research at Conference on College Composition and Communication (15-18 February 2023 in Chicago, Illinois, USA).

We are inviting brief proposals for up to twenty-four researcher-participant roles. We seek proposals for studies about higher education writing around the world. By research, we mean a project with a focused research question, an identified methodology (qualitative, quantitative, ethnographic, historical, discourse analysis, corpus, etc.), and the collection of data in some form. This research can be at any stage and does not need to be final. The research can be focused on teaching or studying writing in any language, and can use data in any language. 

Your role in the workshop would be to provide a draft text about the research by the end of November 2022, to read the other workshop facilitators’ texts before attending the conference, and to participate in the day-long workshop by leading a discussion about your project and participating in discussions of a subset of others’ projects. 

We hope to engage researcher-participants from many countries and research traditions in an equal exchange dialogue, learning from each other: the primary focus is on the writing research itself. This full day is an opportunity to different local contexts as a community, encourage collective reflection, and foster collaboration as a network. Here is a link to previous workshops. 

We invite you to submit a brief proposal that describes a research project (in process or recently completed) that you would be interested in sharing with other facilitators and participants. This proposal should briefly explain your project and its goals and methods, then how you currently see your research fitting into a network of writing researchers. When appropriate, describe what kind of audience, scholarly journal, or professional audience might be interested in your research.

Please submit your proposal by 26 May via this form, the requested information should not take you more than 30-45 minutes to complete.

We strongly encourage you to submit a proposal to the CCCC as an individual presenter, as well: https://cccc.ncte.org/cccc/call-2023

Please write with any questions to: intlresearchersconsortium@gmail.com
