Teaching in English: Manage challenges and leverage opportunities

 

Ziele des Kurses

Upon successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • explain what English-medium instruction is and understand the role of language in this context.
  • reflect on the complex challenges of learning and teaching in a multilingual, multicultural environment as well as on their own role and impact as teachers in this context.
  • assess their instructional design and make adjustments to the specific conditions and requirements of an internationalized classroom.
  • recognize the benefits of teaching in an internationalized classroom and develop strategies for leveraging these opportunities.


Inhalte des Kurses

In this workshop we will scrutinize what so-called English-medium instruction in higher education means and entails. First, we will analyze the characteristics of an internationalized multilingual learning environment. Important points to reflect on will include the role of language in an international classroom and your role as teachers and ‘ambassadors’ of the local academic community. In the next step, you will identify potential challenges in your learning and teaching environments and discuss ideas how to adjust your instructional design in order to avoid or limit these challenges. The last part will consist in a shift in focus: we will concentrate on the opportunities of teaching groups of students with high diversity (language, culture, experience, etc.) and develop strategies how to leverage these opportunities in our specific contexts.

Recommended language level for participation: B2+ and above.
