As a consequence of rapid change in higher education, universities
are finding themselves increasingly engaged in competition for
both students and staff. Competition is stimulating universities
to offer programmes in other languages (especially English), and
in many cases, successfully. However, as the implementation of
multilingual programmes grows, so do the challenges universities
face in offering such integrated education across the breadth of
their educational provision. Hence universities will be looking
for solid evidence of good practice elsewhere, especially grounded
in research. This is what ICLHE 2006 was designed to address.
ICLHE 2006 thus focuses on the integration of
disciplinary content learning and language learning in universities
and other institutes of higher education. In particular, following on
from the ICL 2003 Conference, it highlights research into issues
affecting higher education learning through a foreign language.
ICLHE 2006 addresses key issues:
educational approaches that promote the
integration of content and language in higher education
content adaptations as a result of learning a
foreign language and of having a
multicultural/multilingual student population
and academic staff, including facilitating access to higher education
for speakers of minority languages
course and programme design, especially
master's programmes, promoting the development of writing and research
evaluation and assessment of multilingual
The conference opened on the evening of Wednesday 28
June 2006. Keynote addresses and contributed papers, workshops and
colloquia were presented on Thursday 29, Friday 30 June, and the
morning of Saturday 1 July 2006.
