七、研討會背景與主題/Scope of Conference and Topics
EMI has been a global trend in higher education institutions. In 2021, MOE (Republic of China, Taiwan) launched the “BEST Program,” which aims to enhance English Medium Instruction (EMI) courses development. Under this new bilingual education policy, colleges and universities in Taiwan are encouraged to offer EMI courses. As the BEST program has run nearly for a year, instructors, students and administrators alike have witnessed some major changes in pedagogy and experienced accompanying stress and challenges. Hence the organizers notice the need for calling such a conference.
