Making Internationalisation a Success
Oxford EMI Ltd works with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Governments all over the world making Internationalisation a success.
Our Oxford EMI Certificate for University Lecturers courses are available online and face-to-face.
Our professional development courses are for universities, colleges, consortia which are internationalising. They are for lecturers, professors, academics and researchers who face the challenge of teaching their academic subject through English Medium Instruction (EMI). The courses are multidisciplinary with participants who teach Business, Finances, Economics, Engineering, Sciences and Humanites. The participants are experts in their fields teaching Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral students. Some are very experienced academics and some are post-docs who are just starting on their teaching career.
Our experienced team of teacher trainers, EMI 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 in international classes.
Oxford EMI Certificate for University Lecturers courses are short, 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 a course with us.
The Oxford EMI Certificate for University Lecturers self-access course is also available. Please contact us if your university would like to sample this course.
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.
