CIHE Seminar: “It’s not just about language...” - Challenges and strategies of academics from non-native-English-speaking backgrounds in teaching delivery
Presenter: Dr Kim Anh Dang

The internationalisation of the Australian higher education sector features an increasing number of international students and academics, many coming from a non-native English speaking (NNES) background. Whilst the issue of the English language for NNES international students has been well researched, the communicative and pedagogical challenges facing educators from NNES backgrounds in teaching and supervising students have been overlooked. This study explores the challenges in teaching students using English as a medium of instruction and associated strategies of academics from NNES backgrounds. The study adopted a mixed-method approach, using semi-structured individual interviews and survey questionnaire with academics from a range of disciplines, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) and HASS (Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences) disciplines, at an Australian university. Findings revealed multiple communicative and pedagogical challenges facing academics in providing effective teaching delivery in English. The study also reveals strategies ‘exemplary’ academics applied to mediate their teaching delivery for student learning. The findings have implications for professional development programs and institutional strategy and support for NNES academics teaching in contexts where English is a native language like Australia. Findings also contribute to our understanding of the complexity of the internationalisation of higher education as it unfolds.
