Abstract

The emergence of English as Lingua Franca (ELF), changing demographics, and the effects of globalization have nudged many universities towards using English as the Medium of Instruction (EMI) as part of a strategic policy of internationalization. A majority of faculty and students at many EMI universities, however, struggle with English since it is not their first language. For an EMI policy to succeed, therefore, the development of pedagogy for students and instructors whose primary language has not been English is also needed. Faculty development in English for the Medium of Instruction (EFMI) can support a university’s strategic policy and its overall image while the absence of such a pedagogy can imperil its EMI policy and diminish its image. In this presentation, further elaboration of the need for EFMI and models of how to provide it will be offered.
