全英語教學推動中心於11月16日及11月29日與空中英語教室聯合舉辦四場EMI教師研習營，分別以「Developing EMI Mindset 建立雙語教學心法」、「Teaching Higher-Order Thinking Skills 設計有效課程活動」、「Integrating Tech Tools with EMI 整合科技教學工具」以及「Conducting Assessment Strategies 實施教學成效評量」四大方向為主要講題，內容相當豐富多元，共計24位教師參加。
第一場研習以「Developing EMI Mindset建立雙語教學心法」為主題，講師薛詠文以互動式教學為主要培訓方法，分別以學生為中心和以教師為中心的觀點做為切入點，帶領參與研習教師進行EMI教學討論，互動交流的方式讓各教師皆表示收穫良多。
第二場研習「Teaching Higher-Order Thinking Skills 設計有效課程活動」則是針對課程活動的部分提出在EMI課堂中老師向學生提問的技巧，並且同時比較傳統教學以及EMI教學上的師生互動差異。參與教師表示在EMI實際的做法上，講師有充分且具體的展現，這讓參與的老師們能由教學現場溫題，再去思考EMI的價值。
第三場「Integrating Tech Tools with EMI 整合科技教學工具」講師分享許多實用的網路資源供老師們能夠作為輔助，並且應用在課堂中，使課程能夠進行得更加順利，藉此增加師生課堂互動性。
最後一場研習以「Conducting Assessment Strategies 實施教學成效評量」為主題，講師傳授數種讓老師們能夠有效評估學生的學習成效的方法，例如運用Constructive Alignment設計教學以及檢視教學成效。
The EMI Center collaborated with studioclassroom.com to hold 4 EMI teacher seminars on November 16 and 29, under the four major headings of “Developing EMI Mindset”, “Teacher Higher-Order Thinking Skills”, “Integrating Tech Tools with EMI”, and “Conducting Assessment Strategies”, and the content of these sessions were highly diverse and rich. A total of 24 teachers attended these seminars.
The first seminar was focused on “developing EMI mindset”, where the lecturer Wendy Hsueh used interactive teaching as the main training method, with student-centered and teacher-centered perspectives as the point of entry, and led the teachers in attendance to carry out discussion on EMI teaching. The teachers all express the view that they came away with a lot through the interactive exchanges.
The second seminar, “teaching higher-order thinking skills”, was focused on the part of the teaching activity, introducing techniques that teachers can use to question students in EMI classes, while also contrasting the differences between teacher-student interactions in traditional teaching versus EMI teaching. Those in attendance indicated that the lecturer had adequately and concretely demonstrated the actual delivery of EMI teaching, which allowed them to review their teaching, and then to consider the value of EMI at the seminar.
The third seminar, “integrating tech tools with EMI”, the lecturer shared many practical internet resources with the teachers which can assist with their teaching, and how to apply these resources in the classroom in order to allow the course to proceed more smoothly, while also increase the interaction between teachers and students in class.
The last seminar, under the topic of “conducting assessment strategies”, the lecturer spoke on several effective approaches for teachers to evaluate students’ learning outcomes, such as using constructive alignment to design teaching and to check on teaching effectiveness.
The four seminars all had proceeded step by step based on the topics, and the teachers participating in the various sessions all indicated that the series of seminars was very well thought out. They benefited greatly in various aspects on EMI teaching, and hope that the EMI Center can hold more similar events in the future!
