[en] This special issue brings together research on lecture discourse and lecturer training that contributes to the design and delivery of EAP lecture listening and note-taking courses on the one hand and lecturer training (for English Medium Instruction) on the other.
The internationalization of higher education has gone hand in hand with a continuing increase in English Medium Instruction (EMI) - the use of English as a language of instruction in countries where it is not an official language – as well as online lectures. This has led to lecturing contexts which are linguistically, communicatively, educationally and culturally complex.
To support students and lecturers in respectively learning and teaching effectively in this multifaceted context, proposals are invited for articles that provide insights into issues with a clear relevance to EAP course provision, such as the following:
• What are the linguistic, communicative or multimodal features of lectures (face-to-face or online)?
• How does English L1 and non-L1 (EMI) lecture discourse differ?
• How can EAP practitioners prepare students for lectures delivered by EMI lecturers?
• How can we assess the linguistic, communicative and pedagogical skills needed for effective lecture comprehension or lecturing?
• How can we support or train EMI lecturers to teach effectively in English?
• How can we support or train EMI and L1 English lecturers to teach groups with heterogeneous English language skills as well as different language, educational and cultural backgrounds?
