Meeting Description:

This intensive course, organized by the University of Padova Language Centre (CLA), is intended for teaching staff from European countries who teach, or will teach, their subjects in English.

The objectives of the course are two-fold: firstly, it will aim to develop lecturers' language and communicative skills and build their confidence in teaching through English. Secondly, it will stimulate participants to share, explore and apply methodologies for teaching and evaluating students through English.

During the course, lecturers will engage in a series of participatory workshops using a range of interactive teaching methods. The programme is based on an integrated skills approach and aims to develop language, pedagogic and transferable communication skills.

All instructors on the course have experience of supporting lecturers in teaching through English. Lessons will be held by teaching staff from the Language Centre of Padova and by visiting lecturers, who are experts in the field of Internationalization, English Medium Instruction and Academic English.
