Seminarium om engelska som undervisningsspråk i högre utbildning
Tid: to 10 sept 2020, kl. 14-16
Torsdagen den 10 september gästas LBS av docent Slobodanka Dimova vid Köpenhamns universitet, som kommer att tala om temat The Impact of TOEPAS as Language Tool.
The rapid increase of EMI programs across Europe has raised concerns regarding the oral linguistic competencies of non-native English speaking lecturers and the implications for the quality of the teaching. Consequently, lecturers’ proficiency in English is under scrutiny and universities are developing language policies for quality assurance, which are enforced by implementation of internal assessment procedures. This seminar will focus on the development, implementation, and validation of a performance-based EAP certification test, Test of Oral English Proficiency for Academic Staff (TOEPAS), designed to respond to such policy at the University of Copenhagen. The interplay between language skills, specific purpose content knowledge and teaching skills will also be addressed and discussed in regard to its role in the TOEPAS and in language training for teaching in the English-medium, content-based classroom.
Seminariet hålls på engelska.
