What is ATE?
Academic Teaching Excellence (ATE) is a face-to-face training course that has been developed to help academic staff who do their teaching through the medium of English. It has been specifically designed to improve the overall quality of academic teaching by updating lecturers’ language skills and offering useful techniques for day-to-day teaching.
Simply put: a must-do course for those who deal with international and diverse students on a daily basis.
The 35-hour course is designed for groups of 10-14 lecturers from all academic disciplines who are either beginning to or are already actively teaching with English as the medium of instruction. The minimum language requirement for participants is B2 (Common European Framework of Reference).
ATE has been developed in close cooperation with the University of Oxford's Department of Education, drawing on the latest research in the field of English as medium of instruction.
