Building the Arqus EMI Community of Practice: New series of seminars
|27 Oct 2023
This seminar series, organised and facilitated by Maynooth University, invites researchers and practitioners across Arqus Alliance universities, who are already engaging or have just started the process of engagement with English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) in their institutions. The series is seen as an interactive and supportive forum for practitioners and researchers to engage in regular dialogue to exchange experiences of EMI and become familiar with ongoing research in the field, with a view to improving practices and engagement with EMI across the Alliance.
We look forward to the stimulating presentations and discussions through the course of the series and hope you can join us as we build our community of practice!
All of the sessions take place on Thursday and will start at 1 pm (CET).
