ICLHE Spain Regional Group Symposium

November 5th 2020
(new date in light of the covid-19 pandemic)

Universitat de Lleida

The ICLHE Spain Regional Group is organizing its first RG symposium.  We will have presentations and panel discussions with expert researchers and practitioners. There will also be plenty of time for you to network and discuss your research and teaching contexts to help shape the future of ICLHE in Spain.

Sessions include:

  • Presentations on research projects in ICLHE/EMI based in the Spanish setting, and stakeholders’ views – both content and language experts.
  • A Roundtable discussion on issues particularly relevant to the ICLHE/EMI field in Spain and implications for EMI training, EAP/ESP practices and curriculum and policy planning.
  • A PhD corner where students researching in this field in the Spanish setting can present their on-going research.

As part of our endeavour to support student participation, ICLHE Spain will award 3 travel/ accommodation grants (of EUR 250 each) to student speakers at the 2020 ICLHE Spain Symposium which will take place at Universitat de Lleida, Lleida on 5th November 2020.

If you are a PhD student and would like to give a presentation at this symposium, submit your title and abstract (250-300 words, excluding references) by email to xabierm@dal.udl.cat with the subject line “ICLHE2020_PhDCorner” in the email. The presentation, for which you will have 15 minutes (+ 5 minutes for Q&A), should deal with (a part of) your PhD project and fit the topic of EMI/ICL in Spanish higher education.

The “PhD speaker Selection Committee” will choose the 3 speakers and will then inform all applicants.
