Making Internationalisation a Success
Oxford EMI Ltd works with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Governments all over the world making internationalisation a success. We work with individual HEI, as well as with consortiums on a regional scale, and Ministries of Education and other goverment departments on a national scale.
We provide professional development courses for academics who face the challenge of teaching their academic subject through English Medium Instruction (EMI). The courses are multidisciplinary with academics who teach Business, Finances, Economics, Engineering, Sciences and Humanites joining us on the programmes. They are experts in their fields teaching Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral students. We work with experienced academics and also post-docs who are just starting on their teaching career.
Our experienced team of teacher trainers, consultants and researchers understand how challenging teaching through a foreign language can be. Lecturing to a full hall of international students is not the same as speaking at a conference or reading an academic paper. Participants benefit from courses which are based on research into Education and EMI and from the exchange of practical ideas for making lectures interactive and motivating for all students on TNEs, joint degree programmes and in international classes.
Oxford EMI Training now offers online courses. These courses are intensive trainer-led courses with live video-conferencing with Oxford EMI Trainers. We have had outstanding feedback for our online courses, please contact us if you would like to speak to participants who have completed an online course with us. A stand-alone course will be available soon.
Train the Trainer (Cascading Training)
In addition to working with lecturers, Oxford EMI also cascades training by working with groups of teachers who will become EMI trainers themselves within their university or region. Please feel free to contact us for more information about this.
