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.

ICLHE has updated its privacy policy.

ICLHE AGM & Symposium 2018, Barcelona, October 18-19.

The Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona hosted this year’s ICLHE Annual General Meeting, together with an exciting Symposium, entitled “Plurality and singularity: Multilingual policies and specific situated academic actions”.

The symposium explored the linguistic and cultural atmosphere of higher education institutions where the social environment may demand the use of two or more languages. This symposium aimed to explore how multilingual policies can support universities in recognizing and developing their own specificities in a highly globalized world. How can universities make good use of the diversity of languages and cultures in their community to strengthen their uniqueness?

Speakers: Heath Rose (U. Oxford, UK), Joyce Kling & Sanne Larsen (U. Copenhagen), Helen Basturkmen (U. Auckland), Carmen Pérez & Miriea Trenchs (UPF), Robert Wilkinson & René Gabriëls (Maastricht U), Samantha Curle (U. Oxford), Monica Clua (U. Internacional de Catalunya), and Balbina Moncada (U. Lleida).

Slides of the presentations will be available in the Member Zone shortly.

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.
