English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI)
Our English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) program has been specifically designed to support University educators who are looking to teach their content in English.
Our unique ‘EMI Resource Hub’ is designed to make it simple for instructors of all levels of ability and confidence to incorporate more English taught content into their curriculum and their classes, whether you are just starting to introduce English into your program, or you are already doing so and are looking to take your teaching to the next level.
The EMI program will introduce a range of techniques and a model for EMI classes that can be applied to educators’ classes, regardless of the subject.
This is a practical, hands-on program which combines theoretical input with teaching practice sessions, allowing participants to practice the content, develop their confidence and get individual feedback from our team of experienced trainers.
What is the ‘EMI Resource Hub’?
This unique software tool has been designed by the University of Adelaide to support EMI educators in lesson planning. Users can select the amount of English taught content they wish to introduce into classes, and filter recommendations accordingly to their needs, based on broad discipline areas, preparation time available, mode of delivery and other parameters. Participants on the program will continue to have access to this tool upon completion of the program.
Who is the program for?
This program has been designed for University lecturers and educators who would like to teach some or all of their content in English. Whilst there are no fixed entry requirements, we recommend that attendees have an IELT’s score of 5.5, or equivalent, for effective learning.
Application deadline for the 2023 program is 1st June 2023
