EMI for University Lecturers Course

The EMI for University Lecturers course is a 2-week course held in Oxford.                                                                                                          We have courses in March, September and November and other dates can be planned by request.

This course is for academics, lecturers and supervisors in Higher Education who teach their subject in English. Participants teach academic disciplines such as Business, Finance, Engineering, Sciences, Humanities. They teach Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral students.

Participants need to be able to participate in English but their English can be 'global' English. It doesn't need to be perfect.

The aim of this course is to give participants the tools to deal with the challenges of teaching and learning through a foreign language. Participants learn the teaching techniques needed to teach an international class. These techniques make lectures more comprehensible, interactive and motivating for international and home students.

Participants practise teaching a mini session using the new techniques they have learnt and receive feedback from the Oxford trainers.

In a 2-week course in Oxford there is time to discover the beautiful and historic city and University of Oxford.
