About the course
Academic Teaching Excellence (ATE) is a training course that has been developed to help academic staff who do their teaching through the medium of English. The number of degree courses in Europe that are being taught in English has been increasing significantly over recent years. Often, neither teachers nor students are native speakers of the language they are using, with frustration on both sides as a result.
ATE 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. 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 (EMI). The course is taught by well-experienced teaching staff who have received special training at Oxford University for teaching ATE.
