Find out teaching habits & perceptions of UPM teachers Create a model to help UPM content teachers undertake EMI efficiently Broaden genre & linguistic repertoires + change mentalities & practices _ Classroom discourse as versatile + complex Use their visualizer style (a visual trope!) Help turn classrooms into spaces of mutual scaffolding _ An environment for natural FL learning & content with realistic expectations Make teachers autonomous teaching learners DIAPOSITIVA 3
Educational Low democratic class dynamics ● Class notion as monolithic teacher chalk-and-talk ● Teachers at blackboard giving back to students Prestige of research over teaching ● Predominant research commitment ● Logical disregard of didactic matters (Neumann et al 2002) Recent ‘clilization’ of classes due to Bologna process ●‘Holistic turn’ Transversal skills + LF teaching (Foran 2011) ●‘Multiple reins’ syndrome: insecurities, teachers at a loss DIAPOSITIVA 5
Linguistic (misconceptions) Wrong idea of EMI as mere translation ● Same class notes but in English ● Same pedagogical routines Wrong idea that FL fluency guarantees good LF teaching ● Mere indicator of LF teaching potential (i.e. ability to function in LF contexts) ● Does not entail pedagogical qualification (Klaasen & Räsänen 2006) Reluctance to become linguistic role models ●‘We aren’t teachers of English!’(Airey 2012) ●‘And who teaches us English?' Unsupported internationalization of UPM ●Teacher training as ‘solitary & mercenary’ initiative ● Genres and language command as students’ responsibility DIAPOSITIVA 6

•What is your usual teaching dynamics? (More than one option is possible) 1) Teacher-delivered lecture 2) Team- and pair-work 3) Autonomous learning (laboratory sessions, multimedia support, reading packages prepared by the teacher, project work, guided visits) •Do you consider your classes participative enough? •What participation rate student/teacher best describes your classes? •Should that rate be increased? If not, indicate why •What do you think should be the ideal rate? •Do you slow down your teaching pace according to the class’s level and needs? And insist more on certain parts of the syllabus? DIAPOSITIVA 14
•Mark your habitual teaching practices: 1) Start the class inductively (with familiar facts or phenomena or concrete examples to captivate the audience’s interest) 2) Start the class deductively (with a general law, principle, or theory) 3) Start the class with tangible objects or authentic reports 4) Draw connections between previous contents 5) Repeat/rephrase certain points during the class 6) Ask questions to students 7 ) Use rhetorical questions 8) Exemplify and clarify 9) Summarize class contents at the end 10) Anticipate contents of the current class 11) Anticipate contents of the next class 12) Let other colleagues supervise your classes DIAPOSITIVA 15
