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.

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.

The new ICLHE book is out!

The ICLHE’s latest publication offers a collection of original papers showing how Higher education institutions have coped with changing the language of instruction. It points out that Higher education institutions have undergone radical change in the past decades; of which the shift to English-medium instruction, as well as bi- or plurilingual programmes, is one notable example. The papers comprise new research on teaching and learning through an additional language, and its impact on professional development for university teachers, programme and course development, as well as quality assurance. The articles span different international contexts, and provide education developers, university teachers, educational administrators, language experts, and others, with global perspectives on the professional practices of university teachers.
