June 7, 2021 - Just published: New chapter on English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) in higher education
"Language Use in English-Medium Instruction at University: International Perspectives on Teacher Practice" (David Lasagabaster Aintzane Doiz, Eds.), published by Routledge, brings together insights from research and scholars practical experience on the role of language and language use in teacher practices at the university level in EMI contexts, offering global perspectives across diverse educational settings. The lead chapter is from Ron Martinez and coauthors Paola Machado and Candida Palma, entitled "An exploratory analysis of Language Related Episodes (LREs) in an EMI context: Lecturers' and students' perspectives.
The volume considers the language-related practices, processes and ways of thinking implemented in EMI contexts as teachers and students co-construct meaning through interaction while also situating these observations within the wider educational policies of institutions, societal norms and contextual pedagogies. The book highlights both the diversity and commonalities of the challenges and opportunities in enhancing student experience in different EMI contexts, drawing on international perspectives spanning South America, Europe and Asia. In so doing, the volume offers a comprehensive portrait of the current realities of the EMI experience at the university level, empowering stakeholders to critically reflect upon and adapt their classroom strategies to their own realities and chart new directions for research in the field. The book will be of particular interest to scholars interested in issues in English-medium instruction, applied linguistics, language policy and language education, as well as those currently teaching in EMI contexts.
