Research output: Book/ReportOther report


EMI has emerged as a tool for the internationalisation of hi- gher education as a necessary response to the forces of globalisation. As a result of the development of higher education in the same period in Europe and the rest of the world,1 EMI has become a growing trend. Through a change in the medium of instruction, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Europe and beyond have initiated paradigm shifts in the delivery and services of higher education in order to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. Indeed, the question of language leads university teachers, as well as university leadership, to consider the linguistic, pedagogical and cultural implications of this new context, as well as to rethink the professional development of university teaching staff.
