Add your own review!

Overview

With the exponential growth of English-Medium Instruction (EMI) provision in higher education, which is rapidly outpacing empirical research, this book outlines approaches to EMI in a range of regional contexts to exemplify different interpretations of implementing EMI policy in higher education. The book provides an in-depth understanding of evolving interpretations, challenges and current policies on a global level, through the exploration of case studies from Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Estonia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, Nepal, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam. The case studies, which outline how EMI policy is implemented, are presented in three sections, at the national, institutional and classroom levels (macro, meso, and micro), using a variety of research tools, including policy analysis, stakeholders' conceptualisations of EMI, observations of EMI in practice and context analysis

Reviews

McKinley and Galloway successfully gathered together an international team of English Medium Instruction researchers who have analysed the global and local contexts, as well as policies and practices, of EMI in a diverse range of geographical locations. The result is a most up-to-date account of EMI across the globe, with significant and far-reaching implications for the internationalization of higher education. * Li Wei, Director and Dean, Institute of Education, University College London, UK * This book is a must-read for anyone who seeks to understand the extraordinary complexity of programmes which come under the general label of EMI and the multi-faceted contexts in which they are being implemented. The volume provides multiple case studies conducted at different levels of analysis from all over the world which allows us to see the diversity of what is really happening in these different EMI contexts. * Andy Kirkpatrick, Professor Emeritus, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia *
