English has become the most important and widespread language of instruction in Higher Education (HE) as universities strive to internationalise their programmes and to compete in HE markets by promoting student and staff mobility. For this reason, EMI has recently generated a wealth of research and led to debates among educators and policy makers. Within institutions such as the UV, EMI is seen as a strategic decision to improve the quality of education, internationalisation at home, employability, research, etc. As a result of decisions made at a European level, in Spain, the CRUE-IC Document has directly contributed to EMI by laying the foundations of the internationalisation of the Spanish university system.

As regards our teaching practice, the EMI learning environment provides university students with the ideal scenario to capitalise on their experience of using English to acquire content while enhancing their proficiency in the language. This view is, however, not free from scepticism and numerous challenges. Thus, issues such as language policies and best practices on teaching and learning continue to generate research interest.

In this Seminar, we wish to address the latter perspective. We invite proposals from stakeholders which present and discuss best practices and experiences with EMI in their current teaching activity, alongside the following thematic lines:

  1. EMI methodologies and impact on pedagogy
  2. Challenges of programmes in EMI
  3. EMI and quality of teaching and learning
  4. EMI and assessment
  5. Catering for students’ and teachers’ needs
  6. EMI and motivation
  7. Practical experiences in EMI
  8. Materials design in EMI
