Workshop lost in translation?: Teaching more effectively through the medium of English
You know how to teach and you know English. Yet somehow you have the impression students should get more out of your lecture, or content is not hitting home as much as you’d like. The Language Center offers two different (free) workshops on English-Medium Instruction (EMI).
We are postponing the workshops until we know more about returning to campus and the workshops might well be postponed until next semester, when we will be part of the Teacher Academy.
Workshop 1: Introduction
This workshop introduces the concept of English-Medium Instruction (EMI) and deals specifically with the cultural and linguistic context in which you teach and the concept of cognitive load. You directly incorporate the tips in a mini-lesson that you teach during the workshop and will receive feedback on.
Workshop 2: Getting your point across
In this session, we look at ways to increase communication between students in lectures and language strategies for clearly getting your message across. This includes knowing how to effectively communicate the structure of your lesson to students. You can take this workshop without having done the introduction, but we recommend doing workshop 1 first.
