KEY NOTE PRESENTATION (Conference room: 2nd floor - Building 3P).

The monolingual myth: The danger of operating in a singular target language,

As English teachers, we invariably work in multilingual contexts with multiple languages represented within the classroom, yet there remains a dominance of monolingual approaches to teaching and assessment. This session explores the notion that monolingual paradigms can neglect the greatest resource at our disposal and actively disadvantage our student’s learning. Ideas are considered around how we can redress the balance

KEY NOTE SPEAKER (ETSIAMN/Building 3P).

Shifting Identities and Shaping Ideas - how the provision of English as a Medium of Instruction transforms both course provider and participant, as well as developing core pedagogic skills.

 My talk will emphasise the personal journey taken when established academics are asked to deliver their courses in English. This can happen late in their careers, sometimes with minimal notice, with established academics being asked to deliver a course in a subject they know well, in which they are experts, but in a language in which they are not in complete control. The issue of EMI interrupts and disrupts, sometimes pulling a linguistic security blanket away at a time when academics can be at their most fragile. I shall frame my talk by looking at the shifting identities of the academic, looking at the challenges faced by the cross-generational and multi-national workforces in today’s European universities. The push towards the internationalisation of the curriculum runs through and across the personal histories and experiences of academics who balance the reassurance of the “what and how” they previously delivered, with the shifting pressures of their own re-evaluation and appraisal. 

Nick Byrne (Former Director of LSE Language Centre).
