Diversity and inclusion in EMI Contexts: Practical ideas for teachers
An IATEFL monthly webinar presented by Amira Salama
This session is an attempt to disentangle the meaning of diversity and inclusion in an English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) context.
Rather than delving deep into theoretical concepts, building on her recent research on EMI in Egypt and North Africa, the presenter will share some practical tools for teachers to assess their own understanding of these two concepts in bilingual (and maybe multilingual contexts) and offer some tips to successfully consider inclusion and diversity into their teaching material and instruction.
