Teaching language and content in multilingual classrooms: CLIL and EMI approaches
Editors: María Luisa Carrió-Pastor (Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain) & Begoña Bellés Fortuño (Universitat Jaume I, Spain)

Deadline: 25th January 2019

Introduction and scope

Content-based instruction (CBI) programmes such as Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) are increasingly popular. These have allowed for extensive experimentation in the realm of second or foreign language teaching and learning and have been at the centre of many research agendas (Dalton-Puffer, 2005; Barwell, 2005; Ruiz de Zarobe, 2007; Doiz, Lasagabaster, and Sierra (eds.), 2013; Tsou and Kao (eds.), 2017; Macaro, 2018; Carrió-Pastor (ed.), in press). English has gained an important role in different spheres of life over the last decades. Because of this, EMI and CLIL teaching in secondary and higher education are of interest for many researchers focused on language teaching. The truth is that the concepts of CLIL and EMI have enhanced the innovation of classroom pedagogies in content subjects alongside language teaching. In this vein, this edited volume seeks to take up this call for a broad approach, both illuminating the potential of CLIL and EMI to address long-standing challenges in foreign language teaching, and mobilizing research on teaching to expand the theoretical and methodological repertoires of CLIL and EMI.

Researchers are invited to submit proposals focusing on teacher education and professional development for immersion and content‐based language education. Any manuscript submitted should be original and not have been previously published or currently be under review elsewhere. Recommended topics for submissions are:
• The challenges of content based instruction.
• The implications of teaching CLIL and EMI, the need of teacher training.
• New practices in the teaching of CLIL and EMI in the classroom.
• Intercultural experiences in multilingual programmes.
