An Introduction to Teaching Content Subjects Effectively in English for University Lecturers from Taiwan

1.Introduction

  SEAMEO Regional Language Centre (RELC) is a leading language teacher education centre under the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO). One of the twenty one specialist centres set up by SEAMEO, RELC is the Government of Singapore’s contribution toward language education in the region. SEAMEO RELC’s activities are guided by the following philosophy:

 

We believe that language education will lead to an improved quality of life for people in the region and to greater international cooperation.

 

  Set up in 1968, SEAMEO RELC has an established reputation for providing quality courses of different types, from short courses with focused themes to a Master’s course.

 

  SEAMEO RELC offers customized proficiency courses in English, Mandarin and other languages that are designed to meet the needs of specific groups of people. Our course participants come from varied backgrounds and are of different ages, including students, working adults, officials and educators from the region and beyond. Course participants have come from Afghanistan, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.

 

2.Course objectives

  This course is customized for a group of lecturers from a university in Taiwan. It aims to build course participants’ confidence and skills in using English as a medium of instruction (EMI) to teach content subjects. It also aims to enhance their classroom language for instruction and management as well as to equip them with pedagogical skills and strategies that engage students in their learning.

 

At the end of the course, course participants will be able to:

 

 

  • Consider the qualities and skills needed by educators in an EMI context
  • Understand the principles underlying the effective practice of using EMI to teach content subjects
  • Identify a practical model for the evolving needs of Taiwan’s Higher Education
  • Create a language-rich environment to support content learning
  • Promote critical thinking and enhance students’ content-based knowledge through various questioning techniques and instructional strategies
  • Acquire a language awareness of content area text-types for academic purposes
  • Use effective strategies to engage students in their learning
  • Explore in practical ways the design of teaching/learning materials for content based teaching through EMI

 

3.Course Content

Teaching Content Subjects in English

  • Concepts and Principles of Teaching Content Subjects in English
  • Content – genre/text types
  • Cognition – brain-based teaching, bloom’s taxonomy (HOTS and LOTS)
  • Culture and authentic learning (connecting content to real world applications)

Classroom instructional language and instructional strategies

  • Characteristics of effective use of classroom instructional language
  • Gaining students’ attention and establishing expectations
  • Teacher talk – what (BISCS & CALPS); how (prosody and pronunciation); why (comprehensible input and scaffolding)
  • Classroom language for different functions (e.g. giving instructions, explaining content, reflecting on learning)
  • Questioning techniques
  • Providing feedback (oral and written feedback and use of rubrics for giving feedback)
  • Instructional strategies or processes to develop learner engagement (constructive alignment; visible learning; flipped classroom)
  • Instructional strategies to promote cooperative learning

 

4.Course Delivery

  Participants will attend lectures but also workshops for hands-on practice on how to apply principles/teaching strategies to their own teaching contexts, using materials from their own curriculum. Peers will provide constructive feedback on the features of the lesson which helped or hindered their learning. Throughout the course, participants will be given ample opportunities to use English via the interactive activities and micro-teaching.
