TEACHING IN ENGLISH: ENHANCING INTERNATIONAL FACULTY EXPERTISE
Since English is emerging as the most commonly-used language in arenas such as education, business and science, it is becoming more and more important for universities to take the initiative in helping their students to develop English language proficiency. One of the best ways to do this is by offering courses in which English is used as a medium of instruction; however, it is not always easy for instructors to adapt their materials and teaching styles to English.
The following program, offered by the Global Education Center at Montclair State University, presents a model to guide university professors who wish to gain skill in teaching in English. This program can be customized to meet the special interests and needs of instructors from various universities, disciplines, and academic departments. It provides intensive courses in English language skills and in current teaching methodology.
