Excellence in academic teaching
Academic Teaching Excellence (ATE) is a training course that has been developed to help academic staff in higher education institutions who teach through the medium of English.
Throughout Europe the number of degree courses that are being taught in English has increased significantly over recent years. Often neither teachers nor students are native-speakers of the language they are using, which can cause frustration on both sides.
Developed and taught by experts
ATE has been designed to improve the quality of academic teaching by updating lecturers’ language skills and offering useful techniques for day-to-day teaching. ATE has been developed in close co-operation with the University of Oxford’s Department of Education, drawing on the latest research in the field of English as Medium of Instruction (EMI). The course is taught by experienced teaching staff who have received special training at Oxford University for teaching ATE.
We can organise the ATE course at your institution. There is also a blended learning version available, combining face-to-face and online elements.
