This summer symposium is an opportunity to discuss and share experiences about current issues in higher education internationalization. Our inaugural event on English as Medium of Instruction, will be led by Dr. Chris Worthman, Director of DePaul’s Secondary Education Program. Dr. Worthman is an associate professor of Secondary English Education, who has led the annual summer program for international faculty, the Language and Pedagogy Institute since its inception in 2011.
Following his keynote address, we will hear from a panel of peers who will share their experiences leading EMI programs, in the context of their countries and institutions. Participants will also view a brief presentation on how Virtual Exchanges contribute to student learning in EMI and other contexts. Lastly, Dr. Worthman will lead participants in small group discussions around best practices and areas for future collaboration and development related to EMI efforts.
