Undergraduate Teaching and Learning in English
2016 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
In this presentation I discuss the use of English in the teaching and learning of undergraduate physics. Research is presented on what happens when students change to learning in English and what happens when university lecturers change to teaching in English. The presentation concludes by suggesting that the use of English in any given course or programme should be pedagogically motvated and that this should be set out in the learning outcomes of the syllabus. This suggests that physics courses taught in the meduim of English should have language learning outcomes. This in turn suggests that these outcomes should be both taught and tested as part of the course.
