Integrating Content and Language in Multilingual Universities

Local linguistic diversity and growing teacher and student mobility in higher education (HE) around the world have resulted in increasingly multilingual teaching and learning contexts. This has provided HE institutions opportunities to offer instruction in more than one language—usually the local language and English, but also a possibility to add other languages.

ICLHE conferences have traditionally addressed issues related to teaching and learning in an additional language, including student and teacher perceptions, teacher training, staff effectiveness, learning effectiveness, and program development. This 5th ICLHE Conference will continue to address how focused language instruction/assessment can be utilized as foundation for disciplinary content learning, with specific consideration of the diverse student and teacher backgrounds.

The official language of the conference is English.

We invite proposals for papers, poster presentations, workshops, and colloquia within the conference theme in areas related to one or more of the following suggested topics:

1. educational approaches that promote ICL in HE

2. learning disciplinary content through an additional language

3. ICL course and program design

4. assessment and evaluation (e.g., teacher, student, programs)

5. ICL teacher training and support

While priority will be given to research-based contributions on these themes, other contributions are also welcome.

Colloquia and workshops

Colloquia and workshops should address a common theme, theoretical topic or methodological area, and will be scheduled in slots of 90 minutes. The proposal should include an overall description of the colloquium or the workshop (max. 300 words) highlighting the content and objectives. Colloquia proposals should also contain abstracts for individual papers  (of up to 150 words each). References are included in the word count. Please also provide information about the colloquium contributors, stating full institutional affiliations and e-mail addresses.

Individual papers

Proposals for individual papers (max. 300 words) must clearly indicate a preference for oral or poster presentation. Poster presenters must be physically present to discuss their work during the dedicated sessions. Oral presentations will typically be scheduled in sessions of 90 minutes comprising three presentations, with 30 minutes (20min. for presentation + 10min. for discussion) allocated to each individual presentation.
