Professional and Global Educators’ Community (PAGE) invited Dr. Nicola Galloway from the Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh, and organized a workshop to discuss English medium instruction (EMI: teaching academic subjects in English) which was entitled “Overcoming the challenges in English Medium Instruction (EMI) in higher education.” It was held at the Ito International Research Center, Hongo Campus on February 13th.
A total of 8 participants consisted of graduate students and faculty members at the University of Tokyo. Dr. Galloway, a specialist in EMI, explained the background of an increasing interest in EMI in higher education and course design used in EMI, along with group discussions. Since she was well informed of higher education in Japan, she also referred to the present situation of the Japanese universities facing globalization. The participants deepened their learning of the current state of EMI and course design related to it through lectures and discussions.
PAGE will continue to hold workshops focusing on the improvement of skills in teaching academic subjects in English. We sincerely look forward to your participation.
