Abstract

In recent years there has been a noticeable trend in many countries towards teaching university courses in English. However, from a research perspective, difficulties in obtaining data have meant that relatively little is known about what happens to disciplinary teaching and learning when the medium of instruction changes in this way.

 

In this presentation I have been asked to give a brief overview of the research background in the area of teaching and learning in English, and to present some of the results from my PhD and Post-doc. work. These results are divided into two types:

 

  • Research into student learning experiences when taught in English
  • Research into lecturer behaviour when changing teaching language to English

 

A number of pedagogical issues will be raised and recommendations made.
