Telecollaboration in University Foreign Language Education: Call for Papers | TELT | Scoop.it

The conference aims to look at the different ways in which telecollaboration can contribute to foreign language education at university level and how it can be integrated into universities’ internationalization programmes and policies. We welcome contributions which focus on academic research related to online intercultural exchange as well as practical reports of telecollaborative exchange projects taking place between universities around the globe. We are also particularly interested in hearing perspectives of student mobility coordinators, university management and other stakeholders in regard to how telecollaboration can make a more comprehensive contribution to university education.

Teaching in English in the University Classroom | O'Dowd, Brussels, Dec 2015

Teaching in English in the University Classroom | O'Dowd, Brussels, Dec 2015 | TELT | Scoop.it

Over the past twenty-five years Universities in Europe are increasingly fostering their internationalisation mission to respond to the current mobility trends and global competition.  Teaching subjects through the medium of English (English Medium Instruction or EMI) is widely considered to be an essential tool in the internationalization policies of universities. However, the introduction of EMI in a university can be a problematic process which raises a series of questions and challenges in regard to the accreditation and training of teaching staff. What level of English should teachers have in order to teach their subjects through English at university? What methodological skills are involved in teaching through another language? How can teachers be trained for teaching through English?
