English-mediated Classes in Non-English Speaking Countries: Policy and Pedagogical Concerns
This poster examines the English-mediated classes (EMC) in non-English-speaking countries both from a policy point of view and with pedagogical considerations. As higher education institutions try to internationalize their programs, many universities in non-English-speaking countries have adopted EMCs. We will examine the cases of Finland and the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Singapore, and will present Korea University in particular to review the policy, faculty development activities, and the EMC Certification process. The study will bear significance in that the same exact program may be used for assisting foreign faculty members in universities of English speaking countries.
