22 SES 03 B, Policy, Management and Governance in Higher Education
English medium instruction (EMI, also known as CLIL in Europe) is a fast developing phenomenon. Particularly in higher education, more and more institutions across the world are using English to teach academic subjects, spurred on by a desire to internationalize their offer and their academic profile. This phenomenon has very important implications, in non-anglophone countries, for teaching and learning as well as for language policy decisions. This talk will present findings from a 50+ country survey carried out in 2013-2014 which investigated: the extent of EMI in higher education and its likely impact on secondary education; the general trends both national and regional; the provision for teacher/faculty professional development when switching from home language to EMI; the attitudes of faculty towards the introduction of EMI.
