Many teachers working at Europe’s higher institutions of learning today are faced with new challenges as they begin to teach their core subjects in English. Successful classroom learning requires leadership and engagement that not only stimulates student participation but also facilitates comprehension. For these purposes, language teachers and academics engaged in EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction) may wish to boost their own language skills and exchange ideas with international colleagues in the context of virtual mobility. This workshop series is designed to address these needs and more.
Workshop #5: Focus on Grammar in Advanced Language Courses
- Friday, 8 December 2023
- 10:30 am– 12 pm (CET)
This workshop is designed for teachers who want to fine-tune their understanding and use of advanced English grammar in the university classroom.
Registration is open to all professors, lecturers and instructors, as well as graduate students and administrators with teaching responsibilities who work at an Arqus University. Please note that due to high demand, we will only be able to accept a limited number of participants per university.
A few days before each workshop, you’ll receive a confirmation email that will inform you whether or not you have received a place and that will include the Zoom link.
In each 90-minute session, participants will have the opportunity to practice various language skills and gather new inspiration for their teaching curriculum.
Together, we will look at elements of academic writing such as cohesive devices and discourse markers and will also address the challenges posed by vocabulary and grammar. Participants will have the opportunity to improve their overall fluency while practicing interactive communication skills.
