New Book: Teacher Training for English-Medium Instruction in Higher Education by Maria Del Mar Sanchez-Perez (ed.)

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 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.
