Language for evaluation and feedback

Language for seminars

Working one-to-one with students in an EMI context


Language for evaluation and feedback


To reflect on the principles of EMI in higher education, potential problems, and effective strategies.

To learn about the types of assessment tools and criteria that can be used in EMI courses.

To design an assessment system for course materials and class activities that interrelates competencies and learning objects.

To discuss different case studies.


Assessment, which can be understood both as periodic sampling and measurement, and as ongoing planning for and provision of feedback, can provide a basis for understanding the characteristics of good practices in EMI courses.

The aim of this course is to give participants the tools to deal with the challenges of assessing and giving feedback through English.

1. Introduction to English-medium Instruction (EMI): Reflections, Awareness and Practice 

  • Reflections on personal situations in terms of EMI subjects, English competence, teaching experience, intercultural competence, teacher and students’ attitudes, challenges and needs.

2. The importance of feedback

  • Characteristics of effective, corrective and peer feedback.
  • Language for feedback.
  • Case studies.

3. Principles for fair student assessment

  • Reflections on assessment styles and awareness of types (from formative to summative).
  • Language for assessment.
  • Case studies.  

DURATION: Three 1h 40m sessions.

DATES: Monday 9th of January: from 10.00-11.40h. Wednesday 11th of January: from 10.00-11.40h. Friday 13th of January: from 10.00-11.40h.


Language for seminars


This course focuses on helping lecturers improve their oral communication skills for seminars. Emphasis is on increasing confidence and fluency through realistic activities covering pronunciation, active listening skills, and conversation strategies.

It is a practical, communicative course which requires an active involvement from the participants.

At the end of course, participants should show greater confidence using English as medium of instruction and be able to use a wider range of effective strategies to engage students in seminars.


The first session will deal with the structure of seminars and the difficulties lecturers face when using English as medium of instruction, giving them the language necessary to:

  • Prepare a seminar
  • Explain procedures
  • Set up groups
  • Give step-by-step guidance
  • Use questions to guide students
  • Monitor groups 
  • End the group session.

The two following sessions are practical: participants will be asked to simulate seminars they will have prepared, thus using what they have learnt in the first session.

DURATION: Three 1h 40m sessions.

DATES: Monday 9th of January: from 12.00-13.40h. Wednesday 11th of January: from 12.00-13.40h. Friday 13th of January: from 12.00-13.40h.


Working one-to-one with students in an EMI context


Participants will be given the opportunity to:

• consider the implications of providing individual support to students in an EMI setting.

• identify appropriate and effective language use in one-to-one conversations with students.

• discuss and share ideas for good practice.


• Linguistic, cultural and pedagogical challenges in EMI courses.  Students’ expectations and teachers’ roles. 

• An “English-only” policy or a “multilingual” approach? Do Spanish and Euskera have a role when interacting with students in an EMI context?

• Different ways to use language when leading tutorials and supervision.

DURATION: Three 1h 45m sessions.

DATES: To be set. (Spring semester).
