Teaching in English: strategies for success (sold out)

Practically all universities in Europe offer courses – and some even full programmes – in English. But how can higher education institutions ensure they’re doing this successfully? This interactive workshop will help you engage in the development of English-language instruction and programmes in your own context with a particular emphasis on strategic policies and practices. The topics to be covered include support for teaching staff and students, quality assurance and approaches to teaching in English in non-English speaking environments.
