On June 22 the 2017 English Medium Instruction (EMI) symposium at Oxford University Department of Education “EMI: English Medium Instruction: Building Bridges for a Better Understanding” will be held.
Research on EMI and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) suggests that there is a lack of effective communication among researchers, policy-makers and key stakeholders (learners and teachers). This symposium aims to explore how research can inform policy and practice and how stakeholders can influence the kinds of research questions being asked. But, this symposium will also explore the kinds of research that needs to be carried out in order to comprehend the challenges students face as they progress from one educational phase to another.
More information on the symposium and registration.
