Babel, the Netherlands
Marc Gebuis

I am the director of Babel, an academic language institute in Utrecht and Utrecht University’s language partner. Since 2015, I am a board member of the Association of University Language Centres in the Dutch language area (NUT). Students, as well as academic staff and support staff need to have sufficient language and intercultural communication skills to perform well in an international environment. I see the challenges our target groups face, and which teaching methods (traditional, online and blended) can help them in a short period of time. I also see how valuable and at the same time challenging it can be to implement a sustainable, institution-wide language policy. My knowledge and practical experience would enable me to form a bridge between the EAIE and the working field, while also keeping the subject of language and culture within the association and its members high on the agenda.
