The Department of Education, University of Oxford invite you to participate a special event on “English Medium Instruction: Global Views and Countries in Focus” on 4 November, 2015 (10am to 5pm) at the Department of Education, University of Oxford.
This one-day symposium has a number of EMI world-leading scholars from around the world to present their latest research on EMI.
Institutions across the world are using English to teach academic subjects, spurred on by a desire to internationalize their offer and their academic profile. The symposium will present a global view of EMI and invite EMI experts from different countries to share their perspectives and their research. Other countries’ research will be exhibited in our Countries in Focus poster exhibition.
